RAWLINS – Rawlins High School senior Getty Marburger didn’t know he was going to play college football until quite recently. In fact, he thought his athletic career was over when the novel coronavirus abruptly ended athletics for all high schoolers in Wyoming in early March. Marburger, however, was far from content with how his athletic career ended. He wanted more from sports and wanted it on his terms.
Following the advice of a close friend, he decided to explore his options for athletics beyond high school. He wanted to stay relatively close to home and it was vital for the school he chose to have the right blend of athletic and academic opportunities. Dakota Wesleyan University (DWU) in Mitchell, So. Dak. seemed to fit the bill.
