Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN – Fall practice is now underway for the University of Minnesota Duluth football team.

Coming off an impressive 11-1 season that was cut short by a loss in the NCAA playoffs, the Bulldogs are hungry to once again rise to the occasion in 2019.

UMD returns their starting quarterback in John Larson (junior), who says he is 100 percent recovered from his lower body injury last season.

Along with Larson, the Bulldogs return 6 offensive starters, including junior WR Johnny McCormick and sophomore RB Wade Sullivan.

“We have high expecations for this fall, and understand that we have a lot of work ahead of us to get there. In the same sense, that’s why we’re kicking off today in helmets,” said head coach Curt Wiese.

“This is the fall camp where John Larson goes into fall camp really knowing where he’s at, knowing exactly the position, and the role that he’s in.”

UMD kicks of the 2019 regular season on Thursday, September 5 at 7:05 p.m. against Minot State at Malosky Stadium. All home games can be seen LIVE on the My 9 Sports Network.
