FootballThunder Football getting set for 2017 season

The 2017 Thunder Football team will begin preparing for the 2017 Minnesota College Athletic Association season in August with the traditional training camp leading up to the season-opening game on Saturday, September 2, against Ridgewater Community College at home. The Thunder will look to continue their reputation as one of the best defensive teams in the conference and build an offensive unit that will consistently put points on the scoreboard.

The 2017 schedule features several rivals that should produce exciting, competitive games throughout the season.

 

 

THUNDER Finish 2016 SEASON with a win

Following four consecutive appearances in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference Championship Playoffs, the Thunder Football team missed out on postseason play in 2016 but finished the season nicely with a win on the road. The Thunder defeated the Minnesota West Bluejays 6-3 in Worthington in the final week. The Thunder defense recorded four takeaways and were led by Ja’Paul Sinkfield’s 12 tackles, plus Damon Garner added 6 tackles and a sack. Thunder punter Dalton Bryant averaged nearly 40 yards per punt and dropped three inside the 20 yard line. Tristan Snow caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joseph Jordan. The Thunder finished 2-6 on the season.

A total of eight Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College Thunder football players earned Minnesota College Athletic Conference All-Division honors for the 2016 season. The Thunder placed two players onto the MCAC First Team (Dalton Bryant and Damon Garner), three onto the Second Team (Jeff Andrew, Jack Marsh, Jr., and Rodney Jones), and three more earned Honorable Mention honors (Miles Kelly, Javon Chappell, and Tyrone Eastern). Eleven players achieved MCAC All-Academic Team honors.
