Countdown to Kickoff: Marshfield Tigers


MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WAOW) -- Marshfield was one of the most talented teams in the VFA last season. Unfortunately for head coach Denny Goettl and company, most of that talent has graduated.

"We don't have that star power all over the place anymore," Goettl said.

The Tigers had 18 All-Conference players in 2013. Only two of them, All-VFA linebacker Mitch Zillman and honorable mention recipient Caleb Alexander.

"I feel like we have extremely talented guys, but it's kind of hard to tell in practice," starting quarterback Derek Coffren said. "We're going to have to wait for those first couple of games to see who our real playmakers are."

Marshfield is switching systems this year, as well. Coffren and the Tigers will now run a spread offense.

"We're trying to keep people off balance a little bit," Goettl said. "It's still our same plays, it's just being in a different formation. We're working hard at it and repping kids like crazy."

Marshfield opens its season at Wausau West on August 22.
