The Hancock Owl football team lost seven out of nine starters on both sides of the ball last spring. It will be interesting to see how young guys step up, said Chad Christianson, who enters his eighth season as head coach. The Owls return two-year starter in senior quarterback Kaleb Koehl and veteran receiver in senior Noah Kannegiesser. Montana Molden, Warren Osterman, and a few others saw playing time last season as well, Christianson said.
It would be easy for this year’s Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta football team to allow itself to believe the success of the state-qualifying 2016 team would automatically lead to success this year, but the team has no intention of believing that, said Kevin Pope, who enters his fifth year as head coach of the program.
