The Shoemaker Grey Wolves had a tough season last year finishing 0-10.
So in order to stop history from repeating itself, Shoemaker is taking a new approach to this season and welcoming the fresh start with open arms.
The Grey Wolves are sporting a young roster with very few returners on either side of the ball.
Head Coach Toby Foreman believes they are in arguably the toughest district in the state, but when he looks back at last season's losses, a good chunk of them were only lost in the 4th quarter.
"It wasn't like that, you know, most of our games weren't out of hand, we just didn't know how to finish. And we didn't have that killer instinct as far as going out there when you have the lead and continue to build on that lead," Head Coach Toby Foreman said. "I think sometimes we kinda got a little over zealous and just didn't know how to finish. So, kind of our motto this year is finish, and things are gonna work out for us."
"Last year, it was a learning experience. So this year, going into it we already know the plays, we know everything so we're just looking to get some wins," Isaac Pettit, Grey Wolves senior offensive lineman, said. "Since the season ended last year, all we've been talking about is winning and changing the face of this program into something we want to be proud of."
The Grey Wolves will hit the road for the first game of the year taking on San Angelo Central on the 31st.
