Are you ready for some football? The high school football season officially kicks off today with several matchups across the state of Nebraska. Anselmo-Merna will host Twin Loup tonight at Clark Adams Field in Merna. Troy Gilligan enters his first season as head coach at his alma mater Anselmo-Merna. Gilligan visited with KCNI/KBBN prior to tonight’s matchup. When asked if there is an identity starting to develop with this year’s team, Gilligan responded with “mentally tough”.
Twin Loup is looking to rebound from a 1-7 season a year ago. Longtime coach Mike Kozeal has been pleased with the progress of this year’s team. Kozeal said that the team saw some positive things during the camp they competed in during the summer which they look to build on during the season.
Tonight’s game between the Coyotes and Wolves will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
In other area matchups tonight, South Loup kicks off its season as they travel to Elm Creek and SEM travels to Brady in six man action.
