A central Minnesota school district that was the site of a school shooting in 2003 is getting a new device designed to help keep kids safe: bulletproof whiteboards.
The opening of the high school football season is one of the most exciting times of the year for prep athletes, but it’s also a time of great unknowns.
It’s hard to believe the prep football season came to a close with the Prep Bowl last weekend at the Metrodome. Six games were played over a two-day stretch in downtown Minneapolis. When it was all over, six teams were hoisting a state championship trophy.
Christian Pedroza caught a scoring pass, kicked a field goal and recovered a fumble, and Rocori hung on to defeat Bemidji 17-10 in the Class 4A state championship game Saturday afternoon.
It’s what every kid who plays high school football dreams of: The chance to play on the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving for a state championship.
The Rocori school district is holding a community meeting to discuss school safety — after two students brought weapons to school in April.
