When the 2018 high school football season began, most people knew Lakeville North had a chance to have a special season, but there were some doubts. As the season wore on – it became apparent the Panthers had a chance for a special season. When Panthers' senior running back Brian Curtis started the season, college recruiters were thinking similar things. As the season wore on – like the team – Curtis began to remove some of those doubts. Now Curtis has a state championship and multiple college football options in front of him.

It was a dream season for Curtis and the undefeated state champions.

"I wanted to cherish every moment playing football with these guys," Curtis said. "Winning the championship was a high of my life so far."

Curtis felt one of the keys to the season was how the team reacted when things didn't go well.

"We didn't beat each other up over little mistakes," Curtis explained. "We didn't let little mistakes or a bad play get to us. We moved on to the next play and left everything on the field every single week."
