Pipestone Heads to US Bank Stadium Friday With Momentum

Pipestone Heads to US Bank Stadium Friday With Momentum

Appearances can be deceiving for a Pipestone football team making it’s third trip to the state semifinals in four years.

“More different than alike. I mean we were really big up front, probably averaged 235 across the line. We’re small and quick. Our team speed is a lot faster.” Pipestone Head Football Coach Clay Anderson says.

And there weren’t many expecting the Arrows to return after going 4-6 last year.

“We maybe had eight seniors and not very many junior last year so we started six sophomores last year and we really grew last year as a football team. I was very proud of the progress they made and now this year they’ve just taken it to another level.” Anderson says.

“We had an off year last year but we’re right back there this year. We put in a lot of hard work and I like that it’s shown.” Pipestone Senior RB/DB Garrett Ploeger says.

This team is still young, starting a total of 14 juniors.

“We’re just playing really good as a team. No one blames anybody for anything, we just have each other’s backs. We play hard.” Ploeger says.

“We throw the ball much more than we threw it back then. It’s been totally kind of different but equally as fun.” Anderson says.

And facing another cinderella story in 7-5 Moose Lake/Willow River tomorrow at US Bank Stadium the Arrows know from experience not to judge a book by it’s cover.
