The Cambridge-Isanti Bluejackets struggled through a one-win season in 2019, but the team’s progress went well beyond their record. They will have another season running a new offense and return plenty of starters – including quarterback Connor BraatenConnorBraaten6'4" | QBCambridge-Isanti | 2021StateMN.

"Obviously, we struggled a little bit, but I think part of it is going from the Wing T now trying to spread it out and throw the rock," Braaten explained. "The seniors did a great job sticking through it. This year I am excited because we should have guys in the right places, and everyone has experience."

Braaten likes what the team has to offer at the skill positions, but knows their success started upfront.

"Defensively, if we were controlling the line of scrimmage, it would allow our linebackers to fly in make plays. Then when they passed the ball, our corners were good. On offense, when we were able to run the ball and throw off play-action, that kept people off balance."

Braaten threw for over 1000 yards and eight touchdowns.

"I thought I had a good season. I could have improved in a few places – not having as many turnovers."

The senior has been playing on Friday
