Panthers focused on final season
There will be a little extra pride and emotion to the 2013 Corwith-Wesley-LuVerne football season.
It will be the final season of CWL football as the school will be sharing with Algona next year. The Panthers and head coach Ryan Wagner are focused on making every Friday night count with hopes of returning to the Eight Man State playoffs.
CWL has 11 lettermen back from last year’s squad that went 3-7 overall, 2-5 and sixth in rugged District 2. With just 14 squad members taking part in pre-season drills, staying healthy is clearly the key to the Panther season.
“We don’t have a whole lot of depth because of our low numbers. We are going to have to stay healthy everywhere,” Wagner said. “In the game of football, you have injuries, and so that makes it difficult over the course of the season.”
