Aric Elton, a 2012 graduate of Spring Grove High School, is a member of the 2012 Luther College football team, Decorah, Iowa.

Elton, listed as a defensive back for the Norse, is the son of Kasey Thompson and Tanya Elton of Spring Grove.

The Norse are coached by Mike Durnin who begins his fifth season at the helm of the football program. Coach Durnin enters the 2012 campaign with 36 returning letter winners, 14 on offense and 19 on defense.

"We are looking forward to a great year," stated Durnin. "We have a group of young men who are very team oriented and have a great desire to be the best they can be.

"While we may not have the marquee names we have had in the past, we have an outstanding group of players on both sides of the football returning. We are also excited with a number of new players who could easily factor into the game plan."

Fans can hear all the action on KWLC 1240 AM or on the Luther College Athletics website. The complete schedule can be found at www.luther.edu/sports/men/football.
