ED OLSONGame 299 | August 11, 1982 | Mike Hohenbee, Ed Olson, Joe Salem
The Gopher football team appeared to have turned a corner when it won its first three games in 1982, but finished the season by losing its last eight. Hohensee, a gifted passer, led an offense that set a school record with 742 yards in the opening victory over Ohio University. Olson, the center, captained the team. His son, Ed, from Mahtomedi, became one of the first members of Tim Brewster's 2009 Gopher football recruiting class.
