Dave Schill has been a North Dakota State University fan for decades. 

But the Hillsboro High School counselor wasn’t able to make it down to see the Bison football team’s NCAA Football Championship Subdivision championship game in 2019. 

Nor in 2018. 

Or 2016. 

Or in the four straight years before that.

“I’ve wanted to go forever, and you never know if they’re going to go back again or not,” Schill said. 

The trip didn’t work well with his junior high basketball coaching schedule, however.

“For a lot of years, I would be coaching that Saturday, and I remember one year I was at a jamboree in Cooperstown (N.D.),” he added. “I told my girls, ‘Do not tell me the score. I don’t want to know the score.’”

Schill finally got to see the championship live, however.

He and his daughter, Madison, traveled to Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas for the Bison’s 28-20 win Saturday over James Madison University.
