It's been a terrific run for the Bulldogs, who have beaten Pierz, Breckenridge and Pelican Rapids on this run made even more impressive by the fact that the same 11 guys are playing both offense and defense. Nicknamed the Iron 11!
“The Iron 11 is all of us stay on the field. The 11 guys that start both sides and I think we've all lifted weights enough and we're in good shape we've prepared ourselves for this season. It’s turning out to be a great year.”
“You've gotten here because of what you've done on the field. You continue to play like that, but enjoy this. It is an unbelievable opportunity for these young men and these two communities together enjoy it and if you lose maybe it's because they were better, but we're gonna put 150% into it and I know these kids are not gonna be denied.”
OTC faces Caledonia at 5:45 Friday night.
