A week ago, we learned that our head football coach, Jeff Larson, has accepted the position of defensive coordinator at Northern State University in Aberdeen, S.D. Northern State is his alma mater. He played football for the Wolves. Coach Larson is a native of Aberdeen, and that is where his parents and family members still live. The opportunity to live near family and work at his alma mater was something that he couldn’t pass up.
