A-H-S-T-W Fields an Experienced Football Team in 2014


(Avoca) A-H-S-T-W is coming off  a very successful 2013 high school football campaign. They went undefeated during the regular season before suffering their only loss of the season in the Class 1A state semi-finals to West Lyon to finish the season at 12-1.  The Vikings return fifteen starters from that team.

 

Head Coach Davis Pattee says he is fortunate to have an experienced group coming back; however leadership will be a key factor.

The Vikings must also find a couple defensive linemen to replace Drew Young, third on the team in tackles last season and Nate Bauer.

 

Coach Pattee says the linebacking core should be a little better than a year ago and the defensive backfield is experienced.

 

The Vikings also return junior quarterback Nathan Herbst, who passed for 896-yards and rushed for other 921-yards a year ago as a sophomore.

 

The Vikings held their intra-squad scrimmage Thursday night and open up against Audubon at home on August 29.
