Mankato West's Hunter Friesen was invited to walk on at Mankato but will take his chances at the Division I level

Two-time All-State wide receiver and recent Mankato West High School graduate Hunter Friesen will walk on with the Gophers during the 2013 season. He originally was invited to walk on at Minnesota State University, but decided if he is going to walk on somewhere, he might as well shoot for the level he has always dreamed of playing.
“I’ve always wanted to play D-I football,” Friesen said. “I worked so hard for it.”
Despite the big numbers he put up in high school (63 catches for 1,181 yards and 21 TDs) he doesn’t understand why more teams did not offer him a scholarship.
