Two words, one message for Larimore: Unfinished business.

Paul Peterson, Larimore head football coach, "We are the same team we were last year except a little bigger, faster, stronger and I guarantee you, we're hungrier."

The Polar Bears have been chewing up the competition and are ranked second in North Dakota's Class A.

Peterson, "Rankings right now really don't matter. Everybody is undefeated. You can't lose a game now. It's win or go home, you're rankings mean nothing. We just want to try and win this week and focus on whoever our opponent is next week and keep doing that until hopefully we can maybe play for a state championship."

Larimore has never won a state championship in football and this year's Polar Bear senior class of half a dozen is looking to break the ice.

Hunter Trosen, Larimore running back/linebacker, "To win the first Larimore championship would be huge. I have no words that could describe it."

Brayden Hofer, Larimore senior lineman, "It would be huge. It would be exciting and we will have to see if we can get her."

The orange and black have been taking care of business so far running by teams behind an offensive line led by two all-staters.

Hofer, "Our running backs are good too. They know how to follow our blocks and get going."

Following them to a state championship.

Peterson, "I was a part of the last time we were there and it was a fun time. When you get to that state championship game, that's when it really counts and that's when you play the best of the best."

Larimore hosts Linton-H-M-B October 26th.
