The Ely football team is tearing up the gridiron. Head coach Brian Lamppa says his players...can do it all.

"We have some skilled athletes," Lamppa said. "We can put points up on the board but we can also play defense. They love to play defense."

Ely captain Louis Gerzin thinks the Timberwolves' consistency has played a major part in their seven wins.

"I've never played with a team that executes plays so well," Gerzin said. "It's awesome because we have three or four people who can run and are guaranteed to get yards, and then we have the line blocking up the middle. We almost get yards every play."

The Wolves have found the endzone early and often, which allows underclassmen to get into the action. Senior captain Mark Heiman is glad to see the young guys gain experience.

"When we get up ahead, they get in the game a lot," Heiman said. "Last game they played three quarters. It's really important because they're the next football team that's coming up."

The Timberwolves are undefeated going into the final week of the regular season, but they aren't easing off the gas one bit. After Friday's win, the captains asked the coaching staff to push them even harder in practice.

"I've said all along, let's keep the train rolling. One game at a time, keep the train rolling and we'll see where that train takes us," Lamppa said. "They've bought into everything that we've done here, and we wanna keep that train rolling."

It's a short week of practice with a game against Northeast Range looming on Wednesday. The Timberwolves think they have what it takes to finish 8-0.

"It really comes down to the fourth quarter and who is more disciplined and has more energy against those good teams," Heiman said.
