Glenrock prepares for first football game

GLENROCK, Wyo. After a loss to Mountain View in the WHSAA State 2A Football Semi-Finals last year, the Herders are looking to bounce back even stronger this season. This year they are doing it with a new head football coach, Ryan Collier.

"He is great, he has a lot of pride, a lot of energy, the energy on the field is always really high, we are always moving, he's really personable, if you have any problems you can go to him, questions, he really explains what you're asking and helps you improve it," said senior on the team Dawson Blaylock.

The Glenrock Herders started their practices on Monday and are getting ready for their first game on Sep. 6 against Torrington. The Herders may have lost some key players from last season but they're not letting that or the size of their team effect them.

"We lost our senior backfield, we are trying to make up for it, big shoes to fill, they are great guys, really fast, really good running backs," said Blaylock.

"This season we are just kind of smaller than we have been in the past, but with us being smaller, we have that agility that speed, the fastness, the quickness, and we are looking too build with so that's just the main thing we are working around right now," said senior Cade Griffitts.

They play a scrimmage at Pines Bluff on Friday Aug. 30. at 5 p.m.
