Bloomington Jefferson? Yes. That's right. The Jaguars are 2-0 and off to their best start since 2005 after going 1-27 the last three years.
Under the guidance of former Jaguar defensive end, Tim Carlson, Jefferson won their opener over city rival Kennedy 25-20 and held off the Apple Valley Eagles 12-6. Last season, Apple Valley advanced to the state tournament and lost to Totino-Grace in the Class AAAAA quarterfinals.
Things get tougher for the Jaguars as they return to action next Thursday as they travel to Minnetonka to take on the 3-0 Skippers. The following week, they face another powerhouse in the Lakeville North Panthers.
Can Jefferson keep their momentum and get off to a hot start against Minnetonka or will they be sunk by the Skipper's ship? It should be an interesting rest of the season.
