Knudsen is a Semper Fi coach


Maple Lake High School football coach has had a busy and successful 2013-14 season.
Not only did his team make it to the state semifinals for the first time in school history, but he was also named the section 4AA.
On Friday, Knudsen received the Semper Fidelis Award during the Glazier Clinic.
“I think it’s a great award for my coaching staff and myself,” Knudsen said. “Our staff works hard to develop these kids into leaders. Every player is different and comes from a different background. One thing we do as a coaching staff is dissect that. We know who’s who and we try to instill the character in the kids during and after the football season.”
Knudsen added that trying not to make mistakes on and off the field is a good way to go through life.
