Are you ready for football season? Okay, maybe let's pump the brakes and enjoy a little more sunshine, fishing, racing, golfing, bocce ball...whatever you like doing. Yes, I suggested bocce ball.
Anyway, this past week a trio of high school football standouts from North Dakota announced their verbal commitment to play division one football. Fargo South TE/DE Dawson Weisenberger and Dickinson Trinity RB/WR/CB Kaden Kuntz will be part of the 2019 NDSU recruiting class, while Bismarck Century DE/OL Tanner Thorsness has chosen to join UND next fall. I spoke with all three of them and asked them about their recruiting process, playing style and got a preview of their high school team for this fall. You can listen to the podcast below or access it through Soundcloud. I really enjoyed the conversation with these three and hope to do more of this stuff in the future, whether it be in blog form or via podcast. Let me know what you think! My email is Jody.Norstedt@midco.com and my twitter handle is @NorstedtMidcoSN.
Also, stay tuned for some exciting news regarding MidcoSN's coverage of high school football this fall! We have some fantastic games locked up that'll we be televising live on Friday nights. I look forward to announcing those soon. Plus, we have some cool ideas to enhance our Varsity Sports Live show that airs on Friday nights in the fall from 10:30-11:30 pm (CT) with high school football highlights and reaction from all over North Dakota and South Dakota.
