A “Tackle Cancer Night” tribute to the late educator-coach Ryan Syverson will also be featured September 15 at the home Pelican varsity football game against Barnesville.

Pregame will include a display of “Syverson Strong” on football field, and a moment of silence before the national anthem.

At halftime, there will be a presentation to the Syverson family from Superintendent Brian Korf.

Syverson died in August. He had been on staff with the Pelican Rapids schools since 1998. 

Following the game will be a balloon release. Family, friends, and the football team will join in on the release of the balloons.
