SAVE THE DATES: Friday, June 23, to Sunday, June 25, 2017.

Mark it on your calendar! The Norse Football Team members from the classes of 1985 to 1992 are headed to Decorah for a reunion. It's going to be a great weekend for us to catch up, laugh, and reminisce about our time roaming the sidelines as "Norsemen." L, L-U, L-U-T-H...

There will be plenty of opportunities to hang out with other players, or explore Decorah on your own. We invite all of our former coaches, trainers and staff to join us!

Look for an online registration form available in January 2017. For now... we just want to get the word out to all our teammates.
