Documentary on Bluejacket Football planned for production

Former players, coaches invited to share memories with Jon Nystrom

A neat project chronicling memories and the depth of the Cambridge-Isanti football tradition is being planned out by Bluejacket alumnus Jon Nystrom.

Nystrom came through the C-I football program and was a member of the 1986 and 1987 State champion squads. He’s been kicking around the idea of creating a “Ken Burns”–style documentary which will mix old game footage, recorded video interviews and still photos. Nystrom would like to have as much information as possible on the 100 years of “The Fighting Swedes” and Bluejackets.

Players and coaches who would be interested in helping out with interviews, sharing old photos and other memorabilia can contact Nystrom at jdpopper@msn.com or 763-245-3217.
