Brooten Buccaneers 1973 football reunion


November 23, 2023

From the 1971 Brooten school yearbook, Don Larson is shown drawing up football plays in one of the high school's math classrooms. Larson was the head football coach and also taught elementary physical education and high school math.

The Brooten Buccaneers 1973 football team will hold a 50th anniversary reunion of their special football season in which they went 9-0 that fall. This will take place on Saturday, December 2 at Lucky Shots Bowling Alley in Brooten from 2 to 6 p.m.

The Buccaneers were led by fourth-year head coach Don Larson that fall. They returned a strong nucleus of players from the 1972's squad that finished 2-7. In the final Class C state rankings, which were determined by a computer, Brooten was ranked No. 5. In that year, only the top four teams advanced to the state playoffs, which started in 1972.
