Desert Vista graduate Ryne Rezac recently completed his senior season with the North Central College football team in Naperville, Ill.

The Cardinals went 13-1 in 2013, winning the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) Championship for the eighth straight year with a 7-0 in-conference record. North Central advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Division III Football Championship for the first time, losing a 41-40 decision to the No. 1-ranked and defending national champion University of Mount Union.

The starting wide receiver and team captain caught 47 passes for 544 yards and four touchdowns. He gained season-high 88 yards in a 42-0 win at North Park University and caught a season-best seven passes in the Cardinals’ 52-24 second-round playoff win over the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
