Thunder Looking forward to 2014 season 

Following two consecutive appearances in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference Championship Playoffs, the Thunder Football team is looking forward to working toward a third playoff trip in 2014. A few significant changes appear in the Thunder's schedule this year, most notably the addition of Bottineau Community College in North Dakota to the conference, a bye weekend, plus a shuffling of the sequence of opponents from the past several years.

The season and game schedule moved up to begin one week earlier than in previous years.The Thunder will play three home games at the new stadium facility in Esko, and one more at the new field in Superior.

The 2014 Thunder Football squad gathered for the first time in early August to get things started for the new season. Head Coach Keith Turner has about 60 student athletes reporting for the team, including about 10 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!
