More than past glory and more than pedigree, a high school program’s sweater defines outside perception.
The colors, the logo, the lettering.
The nostalgic recognition from fans young and old, whether their first visual memory of a team’s uniform was in person while standing along the St. Paul Civic Center’s clear boards, or the state tournament livestream feed on a late-model iPad.
The sweater. The sweater. The sweater.
This book’s objective is to celebrate ALL of those programs, both the ones familiar to the rest of the state and those that may only be recognized in their hometown.
From Ely to Worthington, from Baudette to Albert Lea, every boys high school hockey team will be featured equally, with a full, dedicated page to the program’s history. The state’s spotlight doesn’t dim just because your team doesn't make it to the corner of Kellogg and West 7th.
Because without the many, there cannot be the few.
