A football team reunion and homecoming festivities helped bring Manteca High teacher and coach Brian Rohles back to North Dakota for a weekend in late September last year.
It just so happened to fall on the bye week for Manteca’s football team for which he serves as junior varsity head coach.
“I wasn’t sure when I’d have the chance to come back,” Rohles said Thursday during a phone interview from a hotel in North Dakota.
Yes, he has returned to visit Minot State University, where he is an honored guest the next two days. A star offensive lineman for the Beavers’ 2006-09 football teams, Rohles is set to be enshrined in the Minot State Athletics Hall of Fame.
