FARGO, N.D. - Senior Day is when colleges honor their football players in the final year prior to the last regular season home game. For North Dakota State, that day is Saturday.
Dickinson’s Levi Jordheim went from walk-on, to captain for the Bison, and coming out of the helmet by himself Saturday is going to be a special moment.
"It's going to be a reflection for amount of all the hard work that all of the seniors put in and that's really cool that they recognize guys for putting in your 4 or 5 years and when you get that individual recognition, we always talk about the team. But it's cool to reflect back on everything and look at the process we have going forward here," said Jordheim.
The bulk of the Bison’s coaching staff has talked about how much this senior class means to them, because it was their first recruiting class after Craig Bohl left. It’s also the biggest senior class in NDSU history.
"I think every senior class that comes to North Dakota State is special, but the fact we have so many seniors is a big part so much leadership. When you got a class, say ten seniors, we have 24 seniors, so that's just incredible to have that much leadership and that much experience on the team at one time," said Jordheim.
Speaking of time, 1:30 p.m. CT Satuday is when the Farmers Union Insurance Bison Football Pre-Game Show is set to begin. Senior Day will be a big theme to our NDSU coverage from the Fargodome.
