Friday Night Lights: Warrior Football Is Back In Action


The Brainerd Warrior 2021 football season kicks off tonight at Don Adamson Field in Brainerd, game time is 7 o’clock. The Warriors have made the move back to 6A football and tonight’s opponent is Coon Rapids. The Warriors return a nice number of starters from last season when they were only able to get in 4 games.   Jason Freed is in his second year as head coach after many years as Warrior Defensive coordinator and is glad to have his team back on the field.

This year’s captains are Nathaniel Staehling, Grant Gardiepy, Camden Langerman and Jacob Holm.  After the Coon Rapids game the Warriors tee it up on the road against Andover Thursday September 2nd, then back home to face Moorhead on the 10th.

Warrior Football with play by play from Colin MacDonald and Jimmy V, can be heard all season on 1380 KLIZ-AM and streaming at
