And finally today, With more than a dozen starters back from last year’s team that finished 3-7 Luther College football coach Aaron Hafner feels the Norse can take the next step this season. The program received a boost over the summer when a blue artificial playing surface was installed at Carlson Stadium.
Hafner says it has already paid dividends on rainy days.
The Norse will be led by a large senior class of 23 players.
Hafner likes the potential of this year’s team.
