MARSHALL, MO -- Head Coach Paul Troth and Junior Defensive Back Tyler Davis were both selected for individual awards from the Heart of America Athletic Conference. For their accomplishments during the 2012 regular season Troth has been named as the HAAC Coach of the Year, and Davis has been selected as the HAAC Defensive Player of the Year, as the Vikings went 10-0 in the regular season and captured their second-straight HAAC championship.

In addition to a perfect regular season Troth saw the third conference championship during his tenure at MVC, and the fifth appearance in the NAIA Football Championship Series. The 2012 season was the second undefeated regular season for Troth while at MVC as his 2006 squad finished their regular season at 11-0. With the win over Ottawa (Kan.) University in the opening round of the NAIA Football Championship Series Saturday, Troth holds an 88-33 record as Viking head coach and improved his postseason record at MVC to 5-4.

Saturday's contest will be the third postseason quarterfinal game of Troth's career at MVC, and has a 2-0 record in the quarterfinals.

Davis also picked up two all-conference selections at cornerback and punt returner to go along with his Defensive Player of the Year award. On the season Davis has eight interceptions, one fumble return for a touchdown, nine passes defensed, and 48 tackles.
