Sheriffs Coach Reed Anderson is ready.
Thrashing the Vikings, 98-77, in last year's Deputies Football Game was so glorious, so enthralling, that he's looking forward to crushing them again, 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at Lokken Stadium.
Anderson became the Sheriffs' coach because he is the ultimate source of football expertise.
"Last year, one of the organizers, Scott Crump, said they were looking for a coach who understood the game, a coach with experience, with knowledge of what it takes to win, and especially a coach with an understanding of how rules are made and work," Anderson said. "And that was me."
Tim 'The Toaster' Ost of Valley City's 1490 KOVC-AM is the new Vikings coach against whom Anderson will unleash the fury.
"Last year's coach for the opposition left town, and this year's coach, I don't know how they found him," Anderson said. "I don't know where they were trolling that they found this year's head coach."
