(Griswold) After a couple of years of years as Griswold’s wingback, senior Caleb Schaaf will move from second fiddle to Griswold’s featured running back.
Schaaf averaged over 10 yards per carry last season finishing just short of 1,000 yards for the season. He despite not being the primary ball carrier, he led the team with a dozen rushing touchdowns. Coach Andy Everett admits Schaaf is very ready for an expanded role.
It’ll be an experienced offensive line for Griswold with likely four seniors and a junior starting up front. The group will feature Joe Schoning at center, Tyler Wyman, Treighton Oakleaf, and Anthony Lappe could all see some time at the guard positions, and a couple of big tackles in Trevor Elwood and Garrett Beebe.
Walker Mundorf will likely take over as the starting quarterback. He returns from an injury last season. Mason Boucher and Jordan Vetter are at the tight ends. Coach Everett describes Boucher as a great big tight end who gets off the ball well. Derek Kerkhoff and Jacob Dickinson are working out at fullback, and James Reynolds will play wing back.
Defensively coach Everett says things are looking really good defensively and the special teams will get a boost with freshman kicker Alex Dollen.
Griswold went 4-5 and narrowly missed the playoffs last year in an extremely competetive district that saw Logan-Magnolia also end up on the outside looking in.
