2019 Recap

Being the first year Coach, seeing my plan and goals come to life. We were able to change a culture, get the kids to come back out to play, and see the incredible change in the classroom. Our wins score wise on the field could not compare to the victories our athletes saw in coming together as a team, playing every game hard and no matter the score playing the entire game. Seeing our team fight for each other and with having no Seniors, the younger athletes stepping up to lead. I never Coached 8-man football before and that was a huge challenge for me. We were one of not the smallest team in the state of Kansas. We had to finish some games with 6 players. The pace of the game and strategy is far different than the 11-man game. But changing the culture, getting the buy-in from all levels, and maintaining academic as well as field balance was an even bigger challenge.

Key Losses

No Seniors last year

Key Newcomers

Blake Carter

Robert Vanatta

2020 Outlook

We all are more experienced and we have grown a program. We had 10 players last year and this year, we have grown to 20. With no Seniors last year, our guys that are coming back are seasoned and battle hardened. We will continue to grow both in football smarts and the classroom. Chetopa Football will be a contender in 2020.
