Isaac Kolstad is coming back to Mankato.  

His wife Molly told KTOE News that Isaac will be back in Mankato on September 4 to attend the MSU - Saint Cloud season opener football game.

The former MSU football player has been in intensive rehabilitation in the Twin Cities, as he recuperates from an assault in downtown Mankato in May that left him with severe head injuries.

Minnesota State has issued a press release saying it will make the #22Strong hashtag a prominent feature of the season home-opener Thursday September 4.

Members of Kolstad family will raise a special #22Strong flag that will fly on game days throughout the season, and Kolstad will help lead the team out onto the field and will serve as an honorary captain for the game.

Players will wear a #22Strong decal on their helmets and #22Strong t-shirts and posters will be given away to fans.  Fundraising items and apparel will also be available with proceeds benefiting the Kolstad family.

Kolstad played football for the Mavericks the last three seasons and is a December 2013 graduate of MSU. 

MSU Head Football Coach Todd hoffner said he is thrilled ot welcome Isaac home.  "Once a Maverick, always a Maverick, and we are certainly proud to call Isaac one of our own. 

KTOE News asked Molly Kolstad when Isaac would be coming home to stay, and she said that they don't know yet.
