(Audubon) It's homecoming in Audubon this week and the Wheeler football team will be looking to do something that they haven't been able to accomplish since the 2010 season--that's win back-to-back games.
Audubon downed Bedford in wild 43-42 overtime game last week and now host a Guthrie Center team that is 0-5.
Audubon will be playing without their top two running backs who also happen to be two of their three linebackers. The lineup changes will force the Wheelers to shift things around on both offense and defense. Head coach Monte Reibhoff says Lucas Smith-Petersen will start at running back and the defense will shift to a 5-3 front. The good news for Audubon is that one of their leading tackler, Kolton Jensen, returns from injury this week.
Coach Reibhoff warns his team that Guthrie Center is better than their 0-5 record shows. The Tigers were without three key players in their narrow loss last week to Woodward-Academy and played stride-for-stride with Bedford the prior week.
