BRAINERD-- The Warriors of Brainerd will have a new leader at head coach for the first time since 1975 this season, as Ron Skolski retired after 58 seasons of giving his life of coaching football at Kensington (now West Central), Slayton (now Murray County Central), Princeton, and Park Center, before ending up in Brainerd in 1975. They will be led by head coach Jason Freed, who was Skolski's defensive coordinator for the last 10 seasons. Before that, Freed was a head coach at Houston (MN) HS where he started in 2004 and by 2008, he won a 9-man state championship with the Hurricanes.

Today, we meet Nathaniel Staehling, who is the starting quarterback for the Brainerd Warriors. We chatted with this 2022 NFN prospect about being the leader of the Warriors, his recruiting interest, and much more.

Get to Know Nathaniel Staehling

Staehling fits the norm of measurements you want your quarterback to have at 6'2, 205 pounds. Before his sophomore season, Staehling not only played quarterback but was an active linebacker and safety for the Warriors along with playing quarterback. In his sophomore season, he focused on being QB1 and QB1 only, taking away his knack for hitting people at linebacker.
