The Horicon-Hustisford High School football team is excited to be back on the field this summer after a rough 2020 Fall season. Husticon got a late start to last year’s campaign because of local health protocols and then battled COVID-19 issues later, which allowed them to only play three games. Husticon did go 2-1, winning their final two games against Dodgeland and Pardeevile.
Husticon is in the mid-30s for student-athletes out for football this year, which is down 10 to 12 players from last season after a large class graduated last spring. They return three starters on offense and four on defense. He says that a large sophomore class will have a chance to make an impact in 2021.
“As far as the sophomore class is, it’s a big class and quite of few of these young men got to play as freshman last year, which we did not want to do obviously, but there were forced into action, and they did a great job for us.” Coach Mueller told DailyDodge.com. “We feel pretty confident with them.
Husticon opens up their 2021 season on August 20th when they host Lomira in Hustisford. That game was originally scheduled at Discher Park in Horicon but was recently moved.
