If you can't fake it, you don't play. That's what Elk River coach Steve Hamilton says as the Elks attempt to defend their state football championship against Owatonna Saturday, November 25 at 4PM at U.S. Bank Stadium.
Offense rules at this year's Minnesota state high school football tournament. Owatonna and Elk River, who will meet in Saturday's Class 5A Prep Bowl final, are good examples. The Huskies have outscored their two opponents by a combined 115-62. The Elks have pummeled their opponents 117-100 through the quarterfinals and semifinals.
