DES MOINES, Iowa - The 2012 Pioneer Football League champion Drake Bulldogs were presented with their championship rings Thursday evening in a ceremony prior to the women's basketball game at the Knapp Center.
The 2012 Bulldogs went 7-1 in the PFL to lay claim to their second consecutive PFL crown and the sixth in the program's history. Each of the fifth-year seniors, who were instrumental in earning and designing the rings, spoke to and awarded their teammates with the 2012 title rings.
The brief ceremony was one last celebration of the 2012 title as the program now focuses its attention on defending that title and bringing the PFL title back to Des Moines for the third straight season.
The on-field preparations for that title defense begin on March 27 with the start of spring practices which continue through the team's annual spring game on April 20.
