Red Hawks ready to run behind talented trio

Posted: Updated:
Galesville, WI (WXOW) -

G-E-T is led by a trio of talented runners in the backfield.

Kody Gunderson returns for his third year under center, while fullback Butch Haines and Ben Behan line up behind him to complete one of the Coulee Conference's top backfields.

"Everybody has a year of varsity experience now in the backfield just about. We're pretty confident on all of us carrying the ball, leading blocking for each other and stuff," said Haines, who rushed for more than six yards per carry last season en route to First-Team All-Conference honors. "We're all just moving forward trying to get better, playing physical, good solid G-E-T football."

"When we left camp back in July, I really thought we made some really big strides," head coach Jon Steffenhagen said. "Just knowing the offense when we left camp and now we're just trying to fix it, make everything perfect."

The Red Hawks open the season Thursday, August 18 against Mondovi.
