The East Webster Wolverines hope the momentum generated from their Class 2A playoff run in 2009 carries over into this season.
East Webster finished with a 7-7 record last season with a strong finish.
After defeating West Lowndes 24-0 to close the regular season, the Wolverines knocked off Coahoma County 33-8 and Calhoun City 28-14 before losing a 14-12 decision to Ackerman.
That positive ending gives East Webster coach Jimmy Carden something to build on as his squad prepares for its first practice of the preseason today.
â€śWe hope everything comes back together like it did at the end of the season last year,â€ť Carden said. â€śWe should be fairly competitive.â€ť
The Wolverines are scheduling one practice in the afternoons because of the challenge of getting all of the players together prior to school starting.
Carden is looking to get quite a bit of conditioning work in early and doesnâ€™t want to use the heat as an excuse for not working hard.
â€śWe donâ€™t talk about (the heat) and just get ready to play football,â€ť Carden said. â€śWe donâ€™t mention that word and realize itâ€™s just part of living in Mississippi. We go to work and get ready to play.
â€śWeâ€™re going to have a good time. Weâ€™re going to get excited.â€ť
