Comments from Coach Johnson: “(We have) great numbers this year, probably the best that we’ve had for a long time. We have 54 kids 9-12 out. We got a couple nice classes. Our junior class is very big. Our seniors are at nine. We’ve got a lot of kids returning. This year we’ve got kids who are three-year starters. Jake Neis at running back. Nate Skare is a 3-year starter at quarterback. Jayme LaPlante is a 3-year starter. So those guys got a lot of experience. Some of our (other) seniors this year, played last year, started all year, and they played a little bit a sophomores too. We’re excited for the fact we’ve got a lot of experience returning this year. (Two) big shoes we’ll have to fill are our wide receiver and fullback positions, but I think we got the kids to do that.” On the new Southern Football Alliance: “The disadvantage of playing (Caledonia to begin the season) is neither team has a scouting report. It’s gonna be athlete on athlete and (then) whoever can make adjustments. (But) we needed to do it (make the Southern Football Alliance)…that’s the right thing to do. It (evens out) the parity of the conference a little bit better. You can’t have the P-E-M’s playing the Wabasha’s anymore. And you really can’t have the Hayfield’s playing the Kasson’s anymore. This is the right thing to do. Both conferences wanted to do it. It is what it is. We have nine teams in our smaller conference so we have to start a week earlier. You’re gonna get the same rivals, with your Fillmore Central’s and Kingsland. You miss Dover-Eyot .....
