Viroqua goes back to basics


VIROQUA, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Eight long years without a winning season, Viroqua appears stuck in the rebuilding process.

But, with a new leader comes new expectations. The Blackhawks plan to keep mainly the same schemes on both offense and defense. Although, first year head coach Rob Heller believes the playbook may develop a few wrinkles as the season progresses.

However, before that happens, Heller said his players need to keep one cliche at the forefront of their minds.

"You've got to do the little things before you can do the big things," said Heller. "You've got to get back to the basics, and I think if we do that, we're young enough with enough experience where we can do some bigger, more advanced scheming things on offense and defense."

Senior TE/LB Michael Severson, "So, we just hope to leave all the kids, like the juniors, sophomores and upcoming freshmen, we hope to leave them going the right direction, going up."

Viroqua opens the season at home against Cuba City on August 23rd.
