Countdown to Kickoff: Rosholt Hornets


ROSHOLT, Wis. (WAOW) -- Head coach Adam Spindler took over the Rosholt football program last season and led his new team to an undefeated conference record in 2013.

But, like most teams, Rosholt will have to replace much of its production from last fall.

"We lost a lot of upperclassmen," Spindler said. "We lost our entire starting backfield and a lot of linebackers. I'm looking forward to seeing guys step up in the scrimmage and want to take those positions."

The Hornets will continue to run the Wing-T offense, and they'll be looking to a new quarterback in Spencer Hahn.

The team is excited to see his less experienced players step up to fill Rosholt's high level of expectation.

"Starting off with a great season with Spindler last year, we want to build off of that," Luas Wiza, a Rosholt senior linebacker and right guard, said. "We went undefeated in conference but if people want to doubt us, we'll do it again.

"With the playoffs last year, we had a short run but we've got to change that," he added.

Rosholt opens its season against Amherst on August 22.
