Our Countdown to the News 8 Highlight Zone series
Every day...now until Friday, August 22nd...we'll
take a look at a team or two from the area...as they
prepare for the 2014 season.
First up are the Caledonia Warriors.
Caledonia returns 14-starters from last year's team.
The 2013 season saw the Warriors' run of six-straight
trips to state come to an end...in an overtime loss
to Chatfield in the Section championship game.
Streaks of three-state championships and 36-straight
wins were also snapped.
Compared to Caledonia teams of recent years, this
season's team isn't as fast but has a bigger offensive
line that will protect new quarterback Austin Bauer.
Right now Austin Bauer is going to be our leader at
He's a senior, he got some reps last year under Mason
DeMorett and really worked well with him.
He's been a great leader all season and we're expecting
him to take the reigns for us.
It's always kind of been what I thought I'd do, guess
it's pretty cool to start now.
Nothing too special other than before, just play the
game I guess.
