An Anoka coaching legend will be honored prior to the Tornadoes home football matchup against Woodbury Friday night.

The Anoka-Hennepin District said it is Stan Nelson Appreciation Day in the community. Nelson coached the football team at Anoka for 25 years, winning six conference championships. His team earned a state title in 1964 - the first year one was awarded.
