Bemidji Lumberjacks

“i believe the children have had a attitude and they’re coming in wanting to find out, ” BHS mind mentor and activities manager Troy Hendricks said after Thursday’s rehearse. “We’re at that point associated with the week at this time in which it is very easy to have a pity party for ourselves, therefore we must function with that and our pupil leadership needs to dominate and make certain that we’re perhaps not getting complacent and we’re constantly looking to get better time in and outing.”

Bemidji will have to fill vacancies at two crucial opportunities in 2010 — quarterback and running right back.

Seniors Jonah Muller and Chris Larson are competing when it comes to part under center after the graduation of 2015 beginner Jalin Rose.

“They both have actually their skills and additionally they both have actually items that they’re focusing on, ” Hendricks stated regarding the two quarterbacks. “Whichever one of them could be the many consistent for the following few days, few days and a half is the one that’s probably have fun with the first Friday.”

Somewhere else when you look at the backfield, completing the shoes of Logan Hatfield would be no easy task. The Minnesota Mr. Football finalist rushed for 21 touchdowns and 2, 252 yards, the fourth-most rushing yards in one single season in Minnesota State senior high school League history. The operating back will today ply their trade for Concordia College-Moorhead this autumn.

“It’s always tough to change a kid like this, ” Hendricks stated. “We have actually various other pieces. We won’t be as run-heavy potentially offensively or we are able to combine it up and possibly toss the basketball a bit more this present year.”

The Lumberjacks do not have shortage of running backs ready to fill the void, including Ethan Bush, Noah search, Alec White, Thor Solien and Jordan Anderson.

“We’ve got countless running backs today but Ethan Bush is now our #1 operating straight back with Noah search assisting, ” Hendricks said.

On defensive region of the ball, the system happens to be working through newer and more effective looks this week.

“i do believe for all of them, they’re only attempting to make sure people are addressing suitable spots and seeing whenever we can play sports, ” Hendricks said. “We’ll observe how actual our company is dancing, but again, we’re however in the understanding mode. I prefer what adjustments we’ve built to our plan. We’ve got experience at linebacker. Ideally that will over come a number of the inexperience we have at the start.”

Senior Nate Snell provides a good amount of veteran experience entering their third period starting at inside linebacker into the brand-new scheme.

“We’ve added a lot of brand new things and it also’s been brand-new for me personally also, ” Snell said. “I’ve been through these things a great deal also it’s confusing but we’re setting it up done which’s the main thing, just recovering.”

Regardless who’s the ball inside their arms when it comes to Lumberjacks, Seth Dreyer is indeed there to stop for him. The senior captain and lineman, whom could spend time playing on both sides regarding the distinct scrimmage, has actually two significant goals for 2016 — beating a rival and winning the section title.

“Personally, I would like to defeat Moorhead, ” Dreyer said. “They’ve sort of taken it to united states in past times few many years and beating all of them is something that I’ve constantly sort of desired to do. In addition, all of us objective (to-be) part champs means a lot given that it’s a tradition simply because so many Bemidji teams have done it before us and simply becoming successful is always a objective.”
