Young Gone, But Skill Position Players Return

BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. - The Black River Falls aerial attack the past few years caused plenty of headaches for opposing coaches. Quarterback Ethan Young orchestrated much of the high-powered offense.

Young is now gone, enrolled to play football at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Junior Jack Roou takes over.

"He's worked with me throughout the summer," Roou said of his former teammate Young. "We watched some film and hopefully I can do as well as he did, that's going to be a tough accomplishment."

Roou will have some nice returning weapons like wide receiver Matt LaFaunge.

"We've got a lot of weapons returning and people younger last year that didn't play too much that will step up this year and contribute," said LaFaunge.

"We've got a lot of our skilled players back and I played with most of them my entire life so it's going to be fun," said senior lineman Eli Parker.

Still head coach Jim Bible says the start of the season will be a work in progress.

"I always like to use the phrase, 'We're going to let the cake bake a little bit and see how it works out.' We try each year to be a balanced offense and we're going to try to do what we can on Friday nights."
