Tomah, Wis. (WXOW) Tomah is trying to dig themselves out of some hard times of late.
The Timberwolves haven’t had a winning season since 2015.
But they’re taking afresh approach to this season.
Tomah will turn to a strong junior class that saw a lot of playing time as sophomores last year when they took their lumps.
Also, Tomah is no longer a power running team.
They’re going to the spread offense, something they tried a little at the end of last season.
“I just think we have some kids who can play in space a little. We can get the ball out. We’re not going to be a true downhill team like we’ve been in the past and being able to make those reads and being able to react. Defensively, we just need to get more guys to the football. We’re a little bit faster this year so hopefully we can get more guys to the football,” said head coach Brad Plueger.
“Our expectations this year are to outperform what other people’s expectations are for us. We’re shooting for a .500 season and to make the playoffs. We haven’t been there in a while. That’s our goal this year is to make the playoffs,” said center Colby Von Haden.
Plueger said a major goal is simply for Tomah to close the gap on the top of the conference.
