During the fall, many Minnetonka High School students spend time supporting the Skippers and cheering them on to victory.

Nelson hopes to them to a third this season. Nelson “really love[s] the entire process of coaching and taking a team from point A to point B.” He says, “Minnetonka is a special place – great support from our students and community. Friday nights are very special.”

Nelson also praises the current senior class, which has a total of twelve returning senior players who helped the Skippers make it to U.S. Bank stadium for the championship last year.  Nelson highlighted Aaron Syverson,’19, as a key player to watch this season.
