Willmar notebook: Taking the road to Ridgewater
Luke Blanch and his dad left Plain City, Utah, outside Salt Lake, dialed in the GPS and headed for Kandiyohi County. The trip took 22 hours.
“We stopped at Mount Rushmore,” Luke told me Tuesday at practice. “I’d never been there.”
This is a new beginning for Blanch, a starting inside linebacker for the Warriors. He attended Weber State, in Utah, after graduation, but didn’t play football while allowing a hip injury to mend.
