CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Natrona County football team is coming off a semifinal appearance in last season’s 4A state playoffs, and it has begun work on the 2022 season. The Mustangs hit the field for the first time in 2022 very early Monday morning, and the rest of the week includes two-a-days before the sun starts blazing too hot.

Over 150 players are looking to make a name for themselves in the black and orange this fall, and over 20 seniors will look to make one final mark on the football field as Mustangs.

“We [have] got a lot of great kids,” said Natrona County head football coach Steve Harshman. “That’s number one and a lot of kids who have really committed and enjoy each other, and we’re out here just trying to get better and getting up early and going to work and having fun.”

Harshman is entering his 32nd season coaching at Natrona County High School.

“I’ve been really blessed to be here at Natrona County High School. It’s one of the great schools in the country, and [it has] such a long tradition with so many great people that have come through here that have built Casper, our state and our country. So it’s been an honor to be here.

“Every year is new, and you keep learning. We’re doing stuff different than we were last year. Every year it’s a learning experience, and you keep growing and getting better.”

The varsity squad has a little over two weeks to prepare before the season opener at Laramie on Aug. 26.
