Winona, MN-

As football teams start to prepare for the 2019 football season in the Minnesota College Athletic Conference, student-athletes and coaches at Central Lakes College took time to give back to their community. 

The Raiders joined forces to help Kids Against Hunger - Brainerd Lakes Area pack and prepare meals for those in need.  The mission of Kids Against Hunger - a humanitarian food-aid organization - is to significantly reduce the number of hungry children in the USA and to feed starving children throughout the world. Kids Against Hunger is not affiliated with or restricted to a particular religious group and does not discriminate on any basis when distributing its meals.

Central Lakes enters the 2019 campaign looking to compete in the challenging MCAC Eastern Division and to defend their regular season divisional title.  The Raiders finished the 2018 campaign with a 7-3 overall record and 5-0 regular season divisional mark. 

Football teams from around the MCAC will kick off competition in late August; be sure to bookmark the links below for the most up-to-date gridiron information from around the Conference.
