Ansley/Litchfield Football Preview

Central Nebraska’s Sports Source continues its fall sports previews with the Ansley/Litchfield football team.  The Spartans are coming off a highly successful 2021 season which saw them finish 6-2 in the regular season and make it to the Class D2 state football quarterfinals.  Ansley/Litchfield head coach Kurt Kulhanek visited with KCNI/KBBN sports about the upcoming season.  When asked about the strengths of this year’s team, Kulhanek mentioned Zach Loy and Karter Moore up front on the line and Leyton Rohde returning at quarterback.


Every year teams deal with turnover as athletes graduate and move on from high school.  Kulhanek said one of the keys for the Spartans this season will be developing and filling the void at the running back position.


Ansley/Litchfield kicks off its season August 26th when they play at Ravenna.  The Spartans will be featured on KBBN radio September 2nd when they face Anselmo-Merna, September 16th at Burwell, and on September 23rd when they host Twin Loup.
