As summer continues, many of us are eagerly anticipating a new season of St. Olaf football. The players in our homes, certainly, are getting ready with summer workouts and running.
I am looking forward to seeing how far these young men advance on what was a trying and challenging season of change, of injury, of loss and losses. While they found many things to celebrate in a season that saw too few wins, we can admit it will all feel better with a few more victories in 2014.
I know they have a great set of captains ready to lead them. I know they have a great group of coaches, ready to teach them. I anticipate that we will be a strong and supportive group of parents and alumns, ready to support them.
It's not that far away, folks. The boys will be back on the hill in just over a month. Honestly, I can hardly wait.
