Bemidji Football Beginning Section Title Defense


>>>THE BEMIDJI FOOTBALL TEAM ROSE FROM JUST ONE WIN THREE YEARS AGO TO A TRIP TO U.S. BANK STADIUM AND THE STATE SEMIFINALS LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR THE JACKS WON’T BE SNEAKING UP ON ANYONE AND THEY’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO DEFENDING THEIR SECTION TITLE THIS FALL.>>THE GOALS ARE THE SAME, BUT THE FACES SURE ARE DIFFERENT. STARTING AT QUARTERBACK IS JUNIOR BRETT THAROLDSON STEPPING UP FROM THE JV TEAM TO LEAD THE LUMBERJACKS THIS YEAR.>>HE’S MADE THIS CRAFT AND WORKED EXTREMELY HARD, 12 MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR TO BECOME THE BEST QUARTERBACK HE CAN BE. SLOWLY BUT SURELY HE WILL BE ONE OF THE KEY PEOPLE MAKING KEY PLAYS ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR OUR OFFENSE AS THE SEASON PROGRESSES.>>HE’S GOT A TASTE OF BIG GAME PRESSURE, THROWING FOR 34 YARD, IN LAST YEAR’S SEMI-GAME.>>IT HELPS A LOT. TAKES THE PRESSURE OFF ME A LITTLE BIT SO I CAN CALM DOWN. I TRUST THOSE GUYS.>>EXPECT THE JACKS TO EMPLOY A MULTITUDE OF WIDE RECEIVERS IN A DIVERSE ATTACK.>>OUR TALENT IS MORE SPREAD OUT. WE HAD ONE START RECEIVER LAST YEAR AND OUR QUARTERBACK. OUR TALENT IS MORE SPREAD OUT THIS YEAR.>>THE STRENGTH OF THE TEAM AT LEAST AT THE START OF THE SEASON WILL BE THE DEFENSE WITH MULTIPLE RETURNING STARTERS LEADING THE WAY.>>THEIR FRONT SEVEN HAS BEEN EXTREMELY DYNAMIC AND GOING TO CAUSE SOME TROUBLE. THEY ARE SO ATHLETIC UP FRONT AND SECONDARY LOOKS STRONGER AND STRONGER EACH AND EVERY DAY, SO I LOOK FOR A VERY DANGEROUS DEFENSE THIS YEAR.>>THE DEFENSE IS READY TO PICK UP THE OFFENSE, IF NEEDED, AS JACKS OPEN WITH A TOUGH SCHEDULE AGAINST ANDOVER AND BRAINERD.>>WE HAVE TO STEP IT UP. IF OFFENSE IS SLIPPING, WE NEED TO STEP UP AND STOP THE BALL, GET IT BACK TO OUR OFFENSE AND LET THEM TRY TO SCORE AGAIN.>>LAST YEAR’S SECTION TITLE MAY HAVE BEEN A SURPRISE TO SOME INCLUDING THE JACKS BUT THIS YEAR THEY HAVE NEW CONFIDENCE THAT COULD CARRY THEM TO NEW HEIGHTS.>>I THINK LAST YEAR WE DIDN’T KNOW WE WERE GOING TO GET THAT FAR. THIS YEAR WE HAVE SET OUR BAR HIGHER, SOME NEW TALENT. WE KNOW WHAT OUR GOALS ARE. IT SHOULD BE EASIER TO SEE THEM.>>BEMIDJI OPENS THEIR SEASON ON THE ROAD AGAINST ANDOVER, THE FIRST TIME THESE TWO SCHOOLS
