CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming’s high school football season is just a week away, and South High School is fighting to erase the ghost of season’s past.

South has earned the label as an underdog in Wyoming football, finishing last year with an 0-9 record.

A new face has arrived to help change the narrative, though. Head Coach Eli Moody took Greybull High School to the playoffs in two of his three years there, and now sets his sights on helping the bison elevate their program.

A big focus point for Coach Moody is competition, saying that it’s the common thread through just about everything they do in practice.

“I redesigned practices where it’s competition almost 100% of the time. Not necessarily physical, like hitting pads competition, but they’re competing every rep all the time,” said Coach Moody.

The Bison will begin their season against Thunder Basin next Friday.
