Preparing for the annual Red/White Scrimmage and the season was not an easy task for the football team. Head Coach Matt Biehler said much of the team made it to every practice.

“We had 37 ‘100 percent’ kids and many of them made big changes in their strength and fitness,” Coach Biehler said.

With conditioning and weights all throughout the summer and the demanding job to carry on the tradition, some said they felt that the preparations were very rewarding.

“Preparing for this season was different than in the past because I wasn’t top dog like in eighth grade,” freshman Colton Terhune said.

Even though Aug. 28 was a rainy day, that didn’t stop the Cardinals from going out and showing spectators what they’re capable of. Senior and team captain Travis Wood said that the scrimmage went well, and Coach Biehler agreed.

“All the players seemed to know their assignments, and there wasn’t any major injuries either, which was good,” Coach Biehler said.

For the upcoming game on Sept. 5 against Bluestem, the Cardinals hope to start off with a win.

“There is very good leadership from the upperclassman and also the class captains as well,” Coach Biehler said.

Expectations for this year are the same with all the players on the football team.

“I hope we carry on the Conway Springs tradition,” Terhune said.
