(Audubon) When asked what his team was working on during their first football practice of the season, Audubon football coach Monte Riebhoff responded with a chuckle saying, "Well, we just ran." Coach Riebhoff is looking to get his team into good shape knowing that their depth will be limited this season. Several players will have to play on both offense and defense, so get the team ready for that grind is already a priority.
Audubon went just 2-7 last season, but moves from the always competetive Class 1A District 8 to Class A District 7. Audubon returns their leading rusher, receiver, and tackler from the 2011 squad, but will have to replace 11 seniors.
The young squad features only 14 upperclassmen on the 40-player roster. The team will play Riverside for their season opener on August 24th.
