Wolfpack kicks off season with fan support

After a season cut short by an exposure quarantine, Wolfpack Football is experiencing a more normal year with fewer restrictions. Last year the locker rooms were completely off limits and their pre-season was a lot shorter. They practice full time and have, more or less, gone back to the 2019 season’s schedule. “I feel like this year we’ve had a lot more time to connect and become a team,” said QB Connor Overgaard.

The main thing the team has planned for Homecoming is their football game Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. at the Blake (Hopkins) campus.

“It should be a good game; there seems to be a buzz going around the team that we have the potential to do something special,” said captain Charlie Johnson.

The team is undefeated, starting with a highlight moment. “We won our first game against Fridley 15-12,” said LB Joey Stolpestad, “The best moment so far is beating Fridley.”

Stolpestad said that Fridley, “didn’t let up a touchdown last year in seven games.”

Johnson shares the captainship with Judah Thomas. The 12 person coaching staff is led by Head Coach Chris Goodwin.
