A win in tonight’s football game against Chaminade would give the Wolverines sole possession of first place in the Mission League standings. The 6-1 Wolverines take on the Eagles at 7 p.m. on Ted Slavin Field.
Head Football Coach Scott Ruggles didn’t hesitate to call his team “the underdog” in the matchup against a team that stomped on last year’s squad, 55-0.
“We get one of the best teams around coming in next week with Chaminade,” Ruggles said in an interview after last week’s 41-36 win against St. Francis. “I don’t mind being the underdog, and we’ll prepare to win the football game as we do every week. I have a lot of respect for what they do, but why not us?”
Running back/defensive back Correy King ’13 also said last week the key for the Wolverines to pulling off an upset would be a strong week of practice to prepare for Chaminade running back Terrell Newby, who has nine Div. I scholarship offers.
“This is probably one of the biggest games we have to play,” King said. “They’re going to come in cocky and we’re going to need to punch them in the mouth.”
