Brainerd finished the year with a 6-5 mark.

“They are the third-ranked team in the nation for a reason, they practice a lot more and have a great organization,” said Lumberjacks head coach J.J. Kern. “We need to get back at it next season and work on building our team.”

Kern won’t have to wait long to resume football activities as he will take on the role of head coach of the Fargo-Moorhead Lumberjacks in the Midwest Fall Football League. The fall league will consist of eight teams across the state. Playoffs will begin in October following an 8-game regular season.
