MN West President Richard Shrubb speaks on football incident in Brainerd

WORTHINGTON – The Minnesota West Community and Technical College President Dr. Richard Shrubb last week filed an appeal with the Minnesota College Athletic Conference, asking that all MN West athletic teams not be penalized for the actions of just a few. Because of an incident that occurred Oct. 26 during and after a state quarterfinal football game in Brainerd, the MCAC had put all MN West teams on probation. Shrubb is instead asking that the football program face suspension during a period of review, leaving the other teams untouched.
