Dragons Past and Present Get First Taste of Scheels Field

Posted on August 05, 2015

MOORHEAD, Minn. — Minnesota State University Moorhead junior linebacker Aaron Bohl couldn’t hide his anticipation.

“I’ve been waiting so long to get on this field,” Bohl said.

On Tuesday afternoon, Bohl and several of his Dragon football teammates got their wish — stepping onto the new completed Scheels Field at Nemzek Stadium turf for the first time.  Former Dragon football players Tony Duerr and Brad Duerr — both employees of Scheels — and Matt Baasch (a current assistant coach for the Dragons) were on hand to throw the ceremonial “first pass” on the field to highlight the project’s completion. Each threw a pass to their child.
