Bemidji State football calls on Beaver Nation to support one of its own

Monday, April 21, 2014

BEMIDJI, Minn. – To help support one of its own, the Bemidji State University football program is encouraging fans to partake in a free-will offering at the Green and White Spring Game April 24 to benefit the family of freshman Jake Krause (OL, Wadena, Minn.), who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in October. The annual spring game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at Chet Anderson Stadium. The game is free and open to the public.

All proceeds will go to the Krause family to help defray medical expenses associated with Jake’s treatment. 

Donations will be accepted during the pre-game tailgate beginning at 5 p.m. in Diamond Point Park and at the gate of The Chet prior to the spring game. Donations can also be sent to BSU Foundation, 1500 Birchmont Dr NE #17, Bemidji, MN 56601.

Krause, a former three-sport athlete at Wadena-Deer Creek High School, is currently undergoing chemotherapy with the hopes of rejoining the Bemidji State football team next fall.

The Beavers began their 15-practice spring ball season March 30. The 15th and final session will serve as the annual Green and White Spring Game. Prior to the game, BSU will hold a Youth Clinic on the turf at Chet Anderson Stadium. The clinic is for kids in grades K-6 from 5-6 p.m. Registration for the clinic is $15 and will be held indoors at BSU’s Gillette Recreation/Fitness Center in the case of inclement weather.

Registration forms for the Youth Football Clinic are available at: http://www.bsubeavers.com/media/2013-14/football/pdfs/BSU_YouthFB_Clinic.pdf

Under the guidance of 18-year head coach Jeff Tesch, the Beavers (3-8 overall, 1-6 NSIC North in 2013) have posted a winning record in 14 of the last 16 seasons, which includes a conference championship and appearance in the Mineral Water Bowl in 2006 and a share of the NSIC North Division Championship in 2012. Nine student-athletes were named All-NSIC in 2013.
