The Tackle Cancer football game tradition was started by Randy Shaver to raise awareness and money for cancer research. Cancer is a disease that has affected many of our friends and family over the years, and Randy Shaver has been there every Friday in the fall pushing people to learn about cancer and those affected by it.

Sartell football’s tackle cancer game was Friday, October 12 against Bemidji.

 

The Tackle Cancer tradition was started in Sartell by current head football coach Scott Hentges in his first year on the job in 2012. That made Friday’s game Sartell’s 7th Year supporting the cause.

Scott Hentges shared, “Every year the tackle cancer game brings a great opportunity for our team and city to support a good cause that has affected many of our family’s.”

The tackle cancer tradition is a big boost in funding for cancer research in Sartell and high schools across the state. In 2017, Tackle Cancer raised just over $313,000 dollars across 300+ high schools and is projected to raise $335,000 in 2018.

We do the tackle cancer game so the players realize they are playing for something that is bigger than them, bigger than the team, and bigger than football. ”

— Ryan Hauge
