“Are you ready for some football?” The 2019 high school football season begins in full force tonight around the state of Nebraska. The South Loup Bobcats will open their season on the road as they travel to Sutherland tonight. Mat Jagelar moves from assistant coach to head coach for the Bobcats as he takes over for longtime head coach Andy Schwarz. Coach “Jag” told KCNI/KBBN sports that it has certainly been a transition for him taking over as head coach but said the time he was able to serve as an assistant and the ability to get to build relationships with players has helped in that transition.
Jagelar said that developing offensive line play will be a major key for the team to achieve the success they are hoping for this season.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM with kickoff scheduled for 7pm. Listen to our full interview with head coach Mat Jagelar which is posted below.
