MOORHEAD – When Aaron Bohl decided to play football at Minnesota State Moorhead a few years ago, he viewed having his dad nearby as a bonus.
That’s why Aaron took it in stride when his father, Craig Bohl, left North Dakota State after last season to take the head football job at the University of Wyoming.
“I always knew there would be an opportunity where he might leave,” Aaron Bohl said Thursday after MSUM had completed its first practice of fall camp. “I made sure that was more of a bonus than a requirement to come up here.”
In his third year in the Dragons’ program, Bohl has established himself as the starter at middle linebacker. The 6-foot-1, 230-pounder started all 11 games last fall as a redshirt freshman, ranking fifth on the team with 66 tackles. Read the rest of this entry →
Moorhead - Larry Scott remembers a time when the Minnesota State Moorhead football team won games at places like South Dakota State and regularly made the playoffs.
The former MSUM sports information director wanted to make sure those glory days weren’t forgotten.
“I kind of felt this need to chronicle those years and kind of preserve them if I could,” said Scott, who still works part-time at the university. “We had a nice run and we really had a quality football program for a couple decades there.”
That’s why Scott decided to write a book about Ross Fortier – the legendary former Dragons head coach who guided the program during that run of success. The recently released book is titled “The Fortier Years: A Coach’s Story.” Read the rest of this entry →
