Onalaska, WISCONSIN (WXOW) There's plenty of "newness" in the Onalaska football camp this summer.
New head coach and a lot of new starters.
Tom Yashinsky is leading the Hilltoppers this season, taking over for Dieter Antoni.
Yashinsky spent 4 seasons as an assistant there.
So he's a familiar figure.
He returns just 4 starters total from last year's team.
But at least the players have some familiarity with their new head coach.
"I think it works out pretty good. He was here since I was a freshman. So it's not like he's throwing too much of a different thing at us. It's still the basics, just a little newer," said senior Dalton Treanow.
"I think over the summer kids have really bought into the plan we've put in place. Being here the last 4 years they know me. I'm a familiar face. It's helped get everything going an buy in to what we're doing," said Yashinsky.
Onalaska renews it's annual rivalry with West Salem in the season opener this Friday.
