Who woulda thunk a team known for pounding the football wins a prep bowl with a qb that passes for 4 tds?

Lots of good football in the Hutchinson area and a great year for many teams out that way...

I didn't realize Dose was retiring or that he was already finished teaching.

Check out this article:

Lee Ostrom

McLeod County Chronicle

It's not like Dave Dose to miss much of anything while preparing one of his Glencoe-Silver Lake football teams for a Prep Bowl assignment inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. In nine years as GSL's head coach, Dose's teams played in five 14th games and won four - by a combined score of 140-40, mind you.

But despite what some Panther fans may tell you, Dose is human. Ocassionally, by golly, a thing or two does slip by.

Like relaying to his players a venue policy that frowns on dumping Gatorade containers of icy contents on a coach. It seems certain icy contents can be brutal on Metrodome carpet.

"Each year I cover that, but this year I forgot," Dose confessed.

And sure enough, as the final seconds ticked off GSL's 56-20 highlight show over DeLaSalle in Prep Bowl XXVI, a pair of Ice Bath Bandits - clumsily hauling a large orange container - emerged from out of a sea of Black Shirts. In a flash, they ran up on an unsuspecting Dose and proceeded to empty a Big Pour on Big Daddy.

It is interesting to note that the senior captains who performed the deed were the two who played on Dose's defensive platoon this year, Mike Cano and Steve Slater.

Dose absolutely loves football and football players, but if he has to choose, his favorite side of the line of scrimmage is defense.

"They knew they could get away with it," Dose said. "They know I like defensive players to play like pirates."

** **

Dose, who retired from teaching this past September, announced after Prep Bowl XXVI that he has prepared his last GSL football team as a head coach, too.

Indeed, Dose has things he wishes to try, places he wants to go, new challenges he hopes to tackle. Whatever it is, he's earned it. Indeed, all the best to Dose and his family.

Now, should a day come, though, when he gets a little restless for a "Black November," starts dwelling on "None or One" defenses, or directing an offensive end to "Crab Delay" on fourth-and-11 at the other team's 31; should such a day occur, followed by another of the same, and then more and more just like it, I have an idea.

The coach could dabble at creating Maddenlike Panther Version player cards for each of GSL's four state champions. That way, Panther fans could wage battles on their own Xboxes (which would require initial purchases by some of us) to see which champion was the greatest of all: 2000, 2003, 2006, or 2007.

Imagine the fun!

For starters, though, imagine the difficulty of seeding the teams. Based on record, you could easily give the 2003 team (12-2) the fourth seed and the 2006'ers (13-1) the third seed. But which 14-0 team, 2000 or 2007, would get the top seed? (Dose speculated that a seeding game might end in a 21-21 tie, forcing an overtime period, or possibly overtime periods.)

After settling on the seeding, what would happen? Dose - who loves all his players; "just loves them like they were (his) sons" - probably would suggest that four tournaments might produce four different champions. And you know what? That may be so.

Really, that is not a reach. While the 2000 champs and 2007 champs would deserve the role of favorites, Dose noted that all four teams had excellent quarterback play (Dan Resch, Nick Johnson, Matt Muenchow and Matt Muenchow again), and all four squads played championship defense.

Just because the 2003 team might start as a fourth seed does not mean it would finish worse than first. That team's first loss was a 28-18 opener at Hutchinson to a Tiger team featuring Tony Mortensen and Nate Swift; its second loss a 28-14 late-September clash with top-ranked Becker, which wound up going undefeated until losing a 10-6 rematch to GSL in the state semifinals.

The 2003 defense featured current Gophers end Willie VanDeSteeg along the line, Luke Maresh in the middle of the linebackers and Nick Johnson at safety. (Johnson also guided the offense, and he won a regular-season game against Waconia with a punt return for the GW-TD.)

After a 2-2 start, that team finished 10-0 by winning six playoff games by scores of 45-16, 48-13, 31-7, 39-14, 10-6 and 21-0.

What I'm saying is, you would not want to sell any of Dose's state champions short. Each one was a great high school football team.

** **

Dose said he got a strong inkling for how good his 2007 GSL team would be at last summer's 7-on-7 passing league at Crown College. In the championship game, the Panthers lost by one touchdown to mighty Eden Prairie.

"We more than held our own," he recalled.

GSL went on to post a 14-0 record and repeat as Class AAA state champions, while Eden Prairie went on to post a 14-0 record and repeat as Class AAAAA champs. In their Prep Bowl victories, the Panthers amassed 506 yards of total offense in posting a 56-20 win over DeLaSalle; the Eagles amassed 520 in a 50-21 triumph over Cretin-Durham Hall.

** **

Looking at next year's GSL football team, Dose said an "incredible senior class" is graduating, and while a "good nucleus" of this year's juniors and sophomores are returning, some patience will be necessary as the 2008 team develops.

Five regulars return on offense, namely center Josh Noga, guard Derek Nowak, tackle Tyler LaMott, fullback Josh Kraby and halfback Mitch Nowak.

Eight regulars return on defense, namely end Whitey Sanken, inside linebackers Tyler Lang, Ryan Style and Tom Halligan, outside linebacker Mitch Keenan, and defensive backs Cole Ranzau, Aaron Lueders and Kyle O'Donnell.

In addition, pure numbers of football players in each upcoming class are good.

Between now and next August's first practice, Dose said players need to show their "hunger to get better" by excelling in the classroom, participating in other sports, and carrying out their strength and speed training for football with dedication.

** **

For his nine years as GSL's head coach, Dose compiled a 97-19 record (.836 winning percentage). His teams won 22 of their last 23 section games, including the last 18 in a row; went 7-0 in state quarterfinal-round games; and appeared in five Prep Bowls, winning four, including the last two in a row. Wow!
