New White Pine High School Football Coach Quinn Ewell knows that he has a lot of work to do to get his team ready for their season opener at West Wendover on Friday. After a disappointing winless season a year ago, Ewell said that he will gauge the success of the team by how hard they play, and how much progress players make from week to week.
“Last year was tough, but losing like that becomes a mental thing. If we can break them out of that, and see them get better each week, we can be a good team,” Ewell said.
The Bobcats will come back to Ely to face Battle Mountain on Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. in their home opener. After that the team will get two weeks off before heading to Las Vegas to take on private school Meadows on Sept. 19.
