Additional Comments from Cary Eades

“We are excited to begin the Scott Langer era in Fargo. He has won everywhere he’s been at, and his players and teams develop as the season progresses. With an entirely new coaching staff, and not many returners, we will have to have some patience early. However, as it is in Fargo every season, our goal is to be one of the best teams in the West at the end of the season, make the playoffs, and take another run at the Clark Cup.”
