2014 Spartan Football Team
We are proud of the opportunities and support the college offers our student athletes and the subsequent successes of our alumni.
Field Location: The games are played on the Fergus Falls campus at 1414 College Way. The field is located on the east side of the campus.
Scott Strohmeier, a former All-State quarterback for the Minnesota State Community and Technical College Spartans, has been named the 2012 Coach of the Year by the American Community College Football Coaches Association.
Strohmeier recently completed his fourth season as head coach of the Iowa Western Community College Reivers, leading the team to the school's first-ever National Junior College Athletic Association National Championship. Iowa Western is located in Council Bluffs.
Playing for the Spartans in 1993 and 1994, Strohmeier took the Spartans to the state championship game in 1993 and was selected All State both years. He was inducted into M State's Spartan Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008.
The offensive coordinator for the Reivers is Strohmeier's brother, Mike, who played for the Spartans in 1999 and 2000 and was an assistant coach for the Spartans in 2001.
The Reivers fielded a football team for the first time four years ago and won 12 games in 2012, winning the Midwest Football Conference Championship for the second time in three years.
The Coach of the Year award will be presented to Strohmeier at the American Community College Football Coaches Association's 2013 convention on Jan. 8 in Nashville.
"I'm honored and humbled to be selected," Strohmeier said. "To me, it's not just an individual award. I know my name is on it, but I wouldn't be where I am without my assistants and especially my players. It's an honor receiving this award on behalf of Iowa Western, my staff and all my players."
Strohmeier is from Eden Valley, Minn., and lives in Council Bluffs with his wife, Karla, and three daughters.
