Brad Wendland has been a Head Coach in Waseca for 17 seasons, coming to Waseca in 2006. He served for 4 years as the Head Coach at St. James Area for 4 seasons prior to taking over in Waseca. Brad is an alum of South Dakota State University and played football for the Jackrabbits.

Brad is the ultimate teacher-coach, he strives to make all of his students and athletes better by not only instructing them, but preparing them for life beyond the field of play. This is evident through his hard work and dedication to make the students, athletes, and all of Waseca High School better for our community.

Brad is the heart and soul of the Waseca program and has worked tirelessly to build a program that reflects his character, morals, and grit.

After each week of games during the high school football season, the Vikings honor a high school coach of the week. Coaches are chosen based on their contribution on the football field, but more importantly, on the impact they make within their community and for their student-athletes. In addition to being recognized in local media for the achievement, the school’s football program receives a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Minnesota Vikings.
