St. Francis Football Running With a New Pack

By on August 28th, 2013

There’s a lot of change coming this season for the St. Francis Wolves. New head coach, new offense, new conference.

After going 3-7 last season, former head coach Matt Olesnevich went to coach St. Augustine. Now the head man for the Wolves is David LaMarre, and he’s switching things up.

The biggest change for the Wolves will be their opponents. St. Francis is leaving District 2-3A to become an independent. But LaMarre says that won’t make a difference in how they prepare for games.

Those opponents will be seeing a new look from the Wolves offense. Coach LaMarre is looking to move the ball with a unique college attack.

The option is an offense that requires a lot of skills to come together. But Coach LaMarre saw a lot of progress leading up to the season opener.

With all that growth, there’s a bit of a buzz at St. Francis.

The Wolves lost their preseason game against Bell, but now they’re focusing on the regular season. It all gets underway Friday as the Wolves head to St. John’s Country Day.

A new outlook, a new coach and newly independent in football; these next few weeks will determine how successful the changes will be.
