Pat Regan Gets Minnesota Interest

Pat Regan, a 6-foot-6, 275-pound tackle from Mahtomedi named to the preseason KARE-11 All-Metro team, attended the Minnesota season opener and the Gopher football camp, but did not play due to an injury. The Zephyrs have perhaps the state's top offensive line, which features Minnesota commit Ed Olson and younger brother Tommy. GoldenSports.Net recently caught up with Regan to learn the latest.

Pat Regan has helped lead the Zephyrs to a 3-0 start and star running back Stephen Johnson has rushed for 515 yards.

What schools are you hearing from right now?

"Minnesota, definitely. South Dakota State. North Dakota State. I am really excited about that, getting out to some games pretty soon. I am looking forward to comparing the programs.

What are your expectations this season?

Do you have any scholarship offers yet?
