Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Tonight's stop on our high school football tour is the home of the EDC co-champions, the Red River Roughriders, but make no mistake, this isn't the same group that went 6-1 against the EDC last year.

The Riders are trying to replace a large senior class of 23 players, all while maintaining the expectations that come as a defending champ. The group that'll take Cushman Field this year in Rider Red is making no excuses and they're confident they have the guys to compete.

Conner Dingle, Red River Sr. RB/LB: “We have a lot of good guys back on defense, a lot of seniors who got some good playing time last year and juniors that are really ready to step up and make plays.”

Vyrn Muir, Red River Head Coach: “We have a couple spots open on defense, but we have a lot of guys back that made a lot of plays for us last year. We're looking at them to be the leaders of the defense and teach the younger guys how to play and be kind of a mentor for them.”

Check Red River off the list, our 4th of 24 teams. We'll hear from the Central Knights tomorrow night at 10, before dipping into Minnesota on Monday.
