Hope everyone has a great start to the Fourth Of July weekend and has a safe holiday! Usually July 4th is reserved for baseball, but the gridiron will get some attention this weekend, starting today with the Minnesota Football All-Star Game which will be played in St. Cloud. It’s been moved out of the Twin Cities thanks to a new NCAA rule which prohibits All-Star Games from happening on college campuses, that’s why the Shrine Bowl will not be played at the Fargodome in a couple weeks, but at Shanley High School. Anyway, tons of college talent on the field today including four Bison recruits:
RB – Josh Werness – Anoka High School (Preferred Walk-On)
LB – Zach Riopelle – Warren-Alvarado-Oslo
DE – Brett Pierce – Holy Angels
OL – Zach Johnson - Eastview
SDSU and UND also have 4 recruits each in the game, the DL Connection for UND (Joe Mollberg and Brian Labat) and SDSU’s two studs from Totino-Grace, Nick Carr and Andy Moritko. WDAY 6 Sports will be in St. Cloud today, we’ll have full highlights at 6 and 10, so come inside and make sure you check out a look at the future Bison. Have a great and safe Holiday weekend!
