Superior, Wisc. - It isn't quite fall yet, but prep pigskin is about to start as many teams in Wisconsin kickoff their regular season schedules on Friday, including Superior.

The Spartans will be home against Rhinelander. Superior reached the playoffs last season and the Spartans return six starters on offense and four on defense.

"So far this preseason, the kids have done a fantastic job coming together as a team and they understand that it is going to take everybody to be successful. They work hard and respond to everything that we ask of them and are just a fantastic group of kids," says Head Coach Bob DeMeyer.
