For the first time in recent memory, the varsity football team is 0-3 so far this year. There are a lot of new members within the team, and a lot of unexpected challenges so far in the season. 

Sophomore Isaac Winter and senior Zane Zoglmann have both commented on how there are quite a few new players this year.

“There are a lot of new players; lots of our starters aren’t returning this year, so it takes a lot of time to get used to playing,” Winter said. 

With all of these games, and potentially new teams the football team may have to face, Zoglmann has said what he will mainly be focusing on throughout the year as the season continues to move forward.

“[I plan on] being a better leader, and making sure everybody has their heads up when times are tough,” Zoglmann said. 

In addition to new freshmen additions, a senior has decided to play football for the first time. 

“It’s kinda stressful, learning how to play, and learning the different plays, but it’s very enjoyable,” senior Russell Chitwood said.

The varsity football team has another game on Sept. 23, as well as the homecoming game on Sept. 30.
