Pure elation takes over Blossoms Coach Chad Gimbel as he jumps into the arms of one of his assistants just seconds after his team captured Blooming Prairie’s first ever state football title. The Blossoms easily rolled over BOLD 41-15 to claim the state Class 1A title Nov. 29 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Relentless pressure on both sides of the ball pounded BOLD into submission, and the Awesome Blossom football team laid claim to its first state championship in school history and the number one rank in Class 1A football. The final 41-15 score pretty much indicated the dominance of the Blossoms....
It’s understandable if the Awesome Blossoms were a bit nervous at halftime.

Several years of frustration disappeared quickly Saturday, Nov. 16, at U. S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis when the Awesome Blossom football team pitched a shutout over Ada-Borup 41-0 in the state playoff semifinals of Class 1A.  The win earned the Blossoms a second meeting against BOLD in the title...
For the first time in the school’s history, Blooming Prairie will be playing in a state football championship. The Blossoms delivered a cake walk over Ada-Borup 41-0 in Saturday’s semi-final playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis to qualify for the state title game on Nov. 29. Blooming...
All good things must come to an end, and after winning their last 29 games the Owatonna Huskies run at becoming state champions for a third straight year came to an end at the hands of the St. Thomas Academy Cadets. The Cadets used a stingy defense, a momentum-shifting special teams play, and a...
