The Luther football team just missed out on the postseason in 2016. The Knights want to make sure they make it there this year.
Luther returns a close knit senior class, led by running back Noah Matzke, quarterback Zach Wihlm, and offensive lineman Alex Bolstad. Knights also expect a lot of production from the sophomores on the team.
The team says if they can be ready for practice everyday, and stay focused throughout the season, they should be playing meaningful games well into the fall.
"We really need to show that example. Get the hard work kind of attitude that the rest of the team can look up to us and focused their goals on our goals. And so we can work together as a team and ultimately get to the playoffs," Senior quarterback Zach Wihlm said.
"Yeah I think our goal this year again is to try and make the playoffs. We were so close last year. That's going to be a goal year in and year out for this program. And with good leadership and some key roles, I think we will be ok," Head Coach Matt Schiebel said.
