Minnesota football is back in the news and the last week provided plenty of excitement and anxious moments.  No I’m not talking about #4 Brett Favre returning to the purple & yellow.  Yes, purple & yellow.  The Vikings have no gold in their uniforms or in the trophy case.  Although the Lombardi trophy is actually silver but the Vikings don’t have that color in the uniform scheme or trophy case either.

 But I digress. 

 The excitement I’m talking about revolves around the Nicollet Raiders, my favorite football team, as they returned to the gridiron this week for the start of the 2010 high school season. The Raiders are coming off the program’s third state 9-man runner-up finish.  But more importantly the Murphy x 2 combo is back in head coach Tom Murphy and his speedster son Sean Murphy.

The 2009 season was a banner year for the program but also its head coach.  In the sixth game of the season Murphy notched his 100th career victory and garnered plenty of media headlines.

While the senior Murphy spent 2009 defining his place in Minnesota high school history, his son Sean came into his own.  Starting at both WR & DB Murphy finished with over 500 yds receiving on 31 catches along with 4 INTs and a total of 8 TDS.
