It might have been the sky scraping punts during the semifinals of the Class 5A state football tournament at the Metrodome.
Or his consistent performance during Brainerd's 12-game win streak and the Warriors' run to the Class 5A state championship game.
A Brainerd Warrior team that many may have overlooked can no longer be taken lightly.
The Warriors parlayed precise free throw shooting and tight defense into a 46-43 Central Lakes Conference win Friday night at Brainerd High School.
After losing 61-32 to Class 3A's top-ranked and unbeaten Fergus Falls Otters, the Brainerd Warriors have nothing to be ashamed of.
The two-time defending Section 8-3A champions have drilled all 11 their opponents by an average of 37 points.
