Tom VanErp has kept a newspaper clipping since last fall and he has given every one of his Wadena-Deer Creek football players to see it.


The story concerns the Fergus Falls Otters and their amazing 2008 season. The Otters went from 0-9 in 2006 to 10-1 last year and reached the state quarterfinals before falling to St. Michael-Albertville.

VanErp wants to see that kind of success creep across the county line this fall.
