It has been a great two-year run for Jake Schwinghammer Jake Schwinghammer LB Tartan | 2021 State MN and the Tartan football program. Last year, they advanced to the state tournament for the first time in school history – with Schwinghammer – after missing some time because of injury – starting at outside linebacker the second half of the year. In 2019, they completed an undefeated season and with Schwinghammer moving back to his natural middle linebacker spot - nearly made a return trip to State. Going forward, Schwinghammer feels the Titans will continue their upward swing.
"(This year) was a lot of fun," Schwinghammer said. "Coming into the season, we had high expectations coming off our first-ever state appearance the year before. Coach (Matt) Diediker installed a good culture when he came in a few years ago. I think that carried over to the start we had this year. We went 9-0 for the first time in school history. We ended up losing in the section championship. That was a heartbreaking loss, but it was my best and most fun year ever."
Starting at middle linebacker in the team’s 4-3 defense, Schwinghammer was a big part of one of the program’s all-time best
