Superior Football already played a season this year, but they are already gearing up for another one. On Tuesday, the team held their first practice for the fall after last fall’s season was moved to the spring.

"It puts a smile on my face, and tears in my eyes. I’m telling you, we’re excited just to be out here together again. Anytime we have that opportunity, we embrace it. We’ve got an awesome group of kids and coaches behind me here, and we love being together, and when we can be out here on the field, it’s a lot of fun, and we stress that every single day, and that’s what it’s all about," said Superior High School Head Football Coach Bob DeMeyer.

The team hasn’t played a fall season in two years, but they are ready to be back out on the field.

Seniors Kell Piggott and Jordan Goldfine think that having already played football this year will give them an advantage moving forward.

"I definitely think it gave us an advantage. It gave us time to really develop as a team, get good bonding, and of course, play good competition as two Big Rivers teams and North Memorial out of Eau Claire. They’re both quality opponents, and we’re going to be facing them this fall, so I think it gives us a real upper hand in fall season," said Piggott.

"I think it will definitely help us because the majority of guys who we’re playing with now, we just got off the field with about four months ago, so it definitely gives us an advantage there, about half the starting lineup is returning," said Goldfine.

The Spartans will open up the season on August 27 at Stevens Point.
