KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) The Shoemaker Grey Wolves are moving in to their third season under head coach Toby Foreman and his staff. For foreman it's about the gradual improvements, as the Grey Wolves were able to win two games last year after not winning any in the two years prior.
The Grey Wolves will be returning 10 starters, six on offense, four on defense. Many will already be veterans at the varsity level because they had to play as sophomores last year. This includes the duo of running backs, Devin Brown and DeAndre Exford.
"I think the speed was like different for us so we had to adjust and it was hurting us in ball games,” said Brown. “But since we know the speed it's going to be better.”
The Grey Wolves believe even though they have had to go through some growing pains, that experience is going to pay off.
“We have a lot of people that played last year that are going to step up more this year,” said senior Free Safety Devin Owens. “We are going to show up and show everybody that we are back.”
“There is no tradeoff for experience and these guys understand what it takes,” said head coach Toby Foreman. “They won a couple of games. We won two out of our last four. So our expectation is we have to win that first one which is against San Angelo central on August 30th.”
