Aquinas football opens up Friday at Prairie du Chien. And it’s the first big night for a bunch of the Blugolds. The fourth go around for Tom Lee as Head Coach. Conley Malone and CJ Nolte duke it out for the starting quarterback spot. The eventual victor enherits a young offensive line. Four starters in all are back on offense. Only a pair on defense. We are really, really, really, really young. But, the young guys have bought in. They will grow up a lot on Friday nights. You can do a lot in practice but we are looking forward to our scrimmage. But. the game nights…that is when the lights come on. Eleva-Strum — a decade removed from its only state football title. ?? Is the anniversary a sign of big things to come this season ?? Head Coach Chad Hanson hopes so. He loses three first-team all conference guys including the Dairyland offensive player of the year Quin Olson. This team though is busy chasing the grade school glory days… We were all in third grade, I think when the team went to state. It was just so cool seeing all of those guys and how far they made it and it has been kind of a dream of ours. To be like them and do what they did.
