RUSHFORD, Minnesota -- The Rushford-Peterson Trojans have consistently been one of the stronger programs in Southeastern Minnesota.
It was a seven win season for the Trojans a year ago. RP will host Randolph, Fillmore Central and Hayfield this year. They'll open up the season on the road at last year's defending champs in Blooming Prairie -- who shut them out 46-0 in 2019.
Facing the Blossoms right off the bat, Head Coach Davin Thompson and his team are fired up to get going.
"Anytime you're in a sport, you want to compete and we've been banging our heads against each other for four weeks so I think we're hungry to see a different color," Thompson said.
"It's good to get a shot at the defending state champs," senior Kobe Lind said. "We're motivated to get them back this year."

10/16: vs. Randolph
10/24: vs. Fillmore Central
