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!

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.
