The Beavers have one final big bash planned for fans at First Western Bank Field at Herb Parker Stadium this coming Saturday, Oct. 21.
Riding the momentum of a thrilling home victory last weekend the Minot State football team is inviting the community to join the Beavers for their home finale and the start of a win streak as Minot State hosts Minnesota Duluth at 1 p.m. on Saturday for the Prairie Warrior Bowl and Youth League Football Day.
Game Day is sponsored by SRT and the first 750 fans through the gates get a special edition red, white, & blue Prairie Warrior Bowl t-shirt sponsored by SRT, Bone’s BBQ, First Western Bank & Trust, and Subway. All active and retired military, and their families, are invited to this special event and will receive free admission.
“We have a great relationship with the Minot Air Force Base community and we are happy to partner with them to bring their service men and women to a game,” said Janna McKechnie, Assistant Athletic Director for External Relations. “This is a small way we can thank them for their service and recognize their commitment to our country and our community.”
Also, kids wearing their YMCA football jersey to the game will get in free and their teams will be recognized at halftime.“The youth football program in Minot is one of the most popular,” McKechnie said. “It’s a great opportunity for them to see what this sport could be for them. And the energy the kids bring to the crowd is always a great addition.”
Along with enjoying the excitement of a Minot State football game, everyone is invited to the pre-game tailgate party in the MSU Dome parking lot, starting at 11 a.m. There will be plenty of free food for everyone to enjoy as it is “Buckshot’s Best Bites” day with several area restaurants featuring their fares for free for Minot State fans! Fans get to vote for the “Best Bite” and the winner will be announced at halftime.
Saturday’s game also will be “Senior Day” for the Minot State football team, which will honor seniors Lafayette Bade, Steven Brown, Marshaun Campbell, Ben Hardy, Carson Heinen, Philip Green, Sean Hoover, Johnathan Leon, Knylen Miller-Levi, Joemah Norman, Aden Scott, Tim Steins, John Subiono, Aaron Wood, and student assistant coaches Ian Gilbert and Isaiah Southwick.
