ATHENS, Pa. (WETM) – Coming off a 5-2 season the Athens Wildcats are looking forward to what’s hopefully a more normal football season.
Head coach Jack Young says his team has 36 players returning from last year and that they’ve put in a good offseason in preparation for 2021. This year he hopes to have a more normal schedule after missing teams like Wellsboro last season due to the pandemic.
“Our schedule is not a cakewalk by any means,” said Young. “Our schedule is challenging week after week and we want to build off what we did last year.”
