“I keep my motor going all the time, down by 30 or up by 30 I'm giving it my all,” Spring Lake Park athlete Cade McMahon said to Northstar Football. “One of my strengths is always being prepared, our coaches at Spring Lake Park do a great job in helping every player be prepared. Every week we get a very detailed scouting report from our coaches on the team we are playing. Before every play I try to figure out what play the other team is going to run at us using the scouting report. Another way I make sure I'm prepared is watching a lot of film. Watching film helps you recognize tendencies other teams have which can be a great help on Friday nights. Last year our team got to state and battled through two very tough teams making it to the state championship. We came up short in the championship losing to Elk River. One of the highlights from last year was winning the Block which is the trophy we play Irondale for every year. Another highlight was winning the section championship against a solid Robbinsdale Cooper team. But I think the biggest highlight of last season was when one of our defensive lineman, Luke Onstad, picked the ball off and returned if for a huge touchdown against Mankato West in the state semi finals.”
McMahon knows that strength and speed are two big areas he needed to improve heading into his senior season.
“This off-season I've been working hard through our mini camp and in the weight room,” McMahon explained to Northstar Football. “I'm working to improve my strength and speed for the upcoming season because I want to play the best I possibly can for my senior year. A few of our team goals are to beat Irondale and get the block for another year, win the Conference, and get back to play in that Section Championship. A few personal goals I have are go All-Conference again, lead the team in rushing yards and total tackles, and have fun while I play the best I possibly can. I would like the opportunity to play college football. This summer I attended St Cloud State University's camp and also the University of Minnesota Duluth's camp.”
