Coleman Ready to Get Back on Track
COLEMAN – After four consecutive losing seasons, Coleman is ready to get back on track and win.
The Comets struggled offensively a year ago, averaging just over 12 points per game in a 2-7 campaign that saw them post wins over Mid-State Activities Conference foes Merrill and Vestaburg.
“We look way better than we did last year at this time and we’re getting good reads on defense,” Coleman senior Tyler German said. “On offense we’re doing pretty good catching the ball.
“Definitely a goal is to start week one off with a win. Last year we failed that. This year we’re looking to go better. And then make the playoffs for sure.”
Coleman brings a young but experienced squad to the field this fall.
“We’ve got some good young sophomores that got a little baptism by fire last year as freshmen and now they’re in some roles where they’re going to have the ball in their hands and they’re going to be called on to make a tackle,” Coleman coach Chad Klopf said. “We have a lot of kids that are ready to go.”
Coleman opens its season at home against rival Farwell on Thursday, Aug. 29. Farwell won last year’s meeting 20-18.
