Hometown Stars: Brian Aafedt
Having graduated 19 seniors from last year's squad, Red River football is looking to its few returning players to step up as leaders.
One of those players is Brian Aafedt.
Brian plays on both sides of the ball as a linebacker and tight end. And this season he will be one of the leaders on defense at the inside linebacker position.
He also sings in the choir, has performed with the band and participates in theater.
Brian has been a part of the Summer Performing Arts group since he was in kindergarten and this summer he played Mr. Banks in the group's production of Mary Poppins.
Brian is also a good student with a 4.23 weighted GPA. He is taking a numner of advanced classes as well.
Brian hopes to attend either UND or NDSU next year.
He says he plans on majoring in civil or mechanical engineering.
