Grafton, ND (WDAY TV) -- Tonight's stop on our fall camp tour takes us to the defending 2-A champions from Grafton.

Where expectations for the program have soared to new heights, following the team's perfect 12-0 season.

Grafton will have to replace the production from several key players including first team all-state Quarterback Jake Hanson. They also have to deal with the bullseye on their back that comes with winning a title.

Austin Contreras, Grafton Jr.,say, "everybody is going to come after us and we have to defend our state title, but I think we will be ok cause we are just working hard out here and putting in a lot of time in the off-season."

Tom Maus, Grafton Head Coach, "We are going to get every body's best effort and that's why it's tough to be a returning champion you are gonna get everyone's best effort and our team is going to have to step up and be ready to play every week."

Grafton opens the season at Park River next Friday. Tomorrow we'll preview the season of East Grand Forks, before dipping back into North Dakota on Monday.
