Thunder Earns #2 Seed for MCAC PLayoffs 

Following their 2012 appearance in the MCAC Championship Playoffs, the Thunder have made the playoffs two years in a row by finishing the 2013 regular season with two consecutive wins and a 3-1 record in the Northern Division to earn the #2 seed in the Northern Division of the Minnesota College Athletic Conference. With a 5-3 record in 2012, the Thunder won the regular season standings race in the Northern Division of the Minnesota College Athletic Conference, and earned the #1 seed in the Northern Division for the postseason championship playoffs.

The 2014 Thunder Football squad will gather for the first time in early August to get things started for the new season. Head Coach Keith Turner expects around 65 student athletes reporting for the team, including about 25 returning players from last season.

Thunder fans can expect a tough team defense and exciting play on the field. Make sure you check out the game schedule and then make plans to cheer for the Thunder!
