Coach Stern on Lerfald: "Justin is the true representation of a player's coach. Every position Justin has been in charge of has always been the top performing group on the defense. There has never been a player he has coached here at St. Olaf that does not love him dearly. His loyalty to me as the Head Coach and to our program gives me the confidence to turn the defense over to him."
