It’s the same story at North, where second-year coach Wade Standley has turned a team that went 3-7 in 2010 into a 9-1 squad that has state title aspirations.
“This senior class is a special group; as a coach you recognize that even in the middle of the season,” he said. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of the program.”
That enthusiasm isn’t limited to the locker room. Excitement is evident in the halls, and the Timberwolves are expecting a big home crowd for Friday night’s postseason opener against Southmoore.
“Other kids have walked up to me in the halls and asked me if we’re going to win on Friday,” tight end Payton Prince said. “Playing at home is going to be a really big benefit for us, and having that home crowd gets us even more excited and ready to get this win.”
