Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- New St. Scholastica football head coach Kurt Ramler has insisted since being hired that the program wouldn't change much under his new leadership, and he again passed that message along Monday on the second day of fall practice.
Ramler says he's bringing some new aspects to the program, but it's the players that decide the legacy they will leave on St. Scholastica.
"They work really hard, and they care about each other," Ramler said. "They get the fact that this is Saints football. They do things right. It's a real brotherhood. It's the real deal, and it's fun to be around."
Ramler is just the second head coach in Saints history, having taken over for Greg Carlson, who helped start the program six years ago. He said it was the tradition of the program that first attracted him to the school, and he sees no reason to change that in a drastic way.
St. Scholastica has qualified for the past three NCAA Division III tournaments and will start the 2014 season Sept. 6 against Ripon.
