ALMA (KSNT) – Wabaunsee football turned things around last season with a three-win improvement.
The Chargers earned their first victory in the Mid-East League during Brian Henry’s tenure.
“We lost a lot of experience but there’s a lot of experience coming back,” Henry said. “They’re going to get better as the year goes on I guarantee.”
Wabaunsee went undefeated in district play and earned a trip to the playoffs for the third-straight season.
“I think the older guys are really stepping up and the younger guys too,” Wabaunsee senior offensive/defensive lineman Justice Stuewe said. “They’re making good impressions so far.”
Even though Wabaunsee only has a handful of players on the roster, the squad is ready to compete.
“The ones that are out here are quality,” Henry said. “We have a weak junior class, just one kid and the seniors all have a lot of experience. Our sophomores are going to have to play like juniors at the end of the year.”
Wabaunsee kicks off the 2014 campaign against Riley County.
“We always stand together,” Wabaunsee senior offensive/defensive lineman Zach Heine said. “We’re always a team and either lose or win we’ll always be a team.”
