The Waupun High School football program continues to work hard this fall despite their season being moved to the spring because of coronavirus.
First year head coach Ron Walters tells DailyDodge.com that he has been holding what he calls “mini-camp” practices this fall for as many of his players that can make it. During their time together, the team has been working on the basics and also installing their offensive and defensive systems. He says one of the goals this fall is to get his offensive and defensive systems installed because come spring you have no idea how the weather will affect practice. Coach Walters says that he still has some outdoor contact days planned and once the snow comes they may move those days into the gym and keep building fundamentals and teamwork.
The Waupun schedule for the alternate spring season is still being developed but Walters says they will be competing in the Wisconsin Flyway Conference. He adds that they are also looking for a place to play games because there is a concern over what condition their field will be in that time of the year.
He anticipates the varsity will have between 40 to 45 players on their roster this spring and also have a strong JV2 team.
Practice begins on March 8th for the alternate spring football season with games starting on March 26th.
