High school football practices started up yesterday (Monday) morning at Cheyenne East, Central and South, as class 4A in Wyoming was able to get two-a-day sessions going.
The defending 4A champs at East return a good core of last year’s squad, as head coach Chad Goff enters his ninth season. That includes quarterback and safety, Tevis Bartlett, who is having quite the season on the recruiting trail, with offers from Oregon, Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming. But Goff says a few players are back that didn’t play last year, and he’s really excited about this year’s prospects, saying it was the best first practice they’ve had in his time at East.
The Thunderbirds open the year at Rock Springs, August 29th.
Meanwhile, it’s a new era at Central High School, as Drew Severn takes over the reigns for the Indians. You can expect changes within the program on both sides of the ball, although Severn isn’t letting out any secrets right now, but he says it was a good start yesterday and a good day to get going.
Central will play Natrona County in the opener, August 29th.
And at South, it’s another year for improvement as the Bison head into year four under head coach Tracy Pugh. South did break through with their first program win last season at home against Rock Springs, and they will hope to build on that this season. South opens up the year at home against Evanston.
