Countdown to Kickoff: Chargers look to end playoff drought in 2010

By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  The Wittenberg-Birnamwood football team hasn't been to the playoffs since 2006.

In today's "Countdown to Kickoff", we feature a Charger squad that's ready to get back.

The Chargers finished just 2-7 a year ago, as the team has been in a sort of rebuilding mode the last few seasons.

But in 2010, with some younger guys with starting experience stepping up, the new year looks promising.

Says Head Coach Chuck Wavrunek, "The young guys have been thrown into the fire a bit the last few years and they have that experience, they have that game experience, they know what it's like to compete at a high level and they're really working hard. We're looking forward to seeing what they can do now when they get to that upper-classmen level."

Says Junior Taylor Okerlund, "This year you can kinda tell a difference that they're learning more, they know what they're doing so it's a little bit easier."
