Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The WDAY Fall Camp Tour makes a stop at one of the powerhouses in Minnesota football over the past five years, Barnesville, the Trojans.
Who just a few seasons ago were a co-op, have developed into one of the most successful teams around.
And when I say successful, I mean haven't lost a regular season game in four years kind of success! Bryan Strand has 11 seniors back and know what kind of tradition they have built.
Bryan Strand- Barnesville Head Coach: "The kids expect it, we expect it. They come into it having watched the last few years. We haven't lost a regular season game in the last four years. These guys have seen that. They don't want to be the first group to lose that regular season game. They know what's expected of them and when they don't do it, they get on themselves harder than we do sometimes."
Josh Smith- Barnesville Sr. OL/DL: "It's going to be our quickness and how close we come together by the end of the year. Come playoffs, if we're close, I think we'll do good."
The Trojans open Thursday against Otter Tail Central, tonight the tour makes a stop in Pelican Rapids to see the Vikings.
