South Loup Football Preview

Central Nebraska’s Sports Source continues its fall sports preview series with the South Loup football team.  The Bobcats won their final game of the 2021 season to finish at 1-7 against a highly competitive schedule.  Five of South Loup’s eight opponents last season finished the regular season at 6-2 or better.  South Loup head coach Mat Jagelar visited with KCNI/KBBN sports about the upcoming season.  Jagelar said he was proud of the way his team battled through adversity last year and finished the season strong.  He believes that the team is poised to show significant improvement this season.


A lack of numbers and injuries the last couple years created some problems with depth but this year coach Jagelar expects a group of 24 which has the head coach excited.


South Loup will begin its season August 25th as they travel to Elm Creek.  The Bobcats will be featured on KBBN radio September 15th against Sandhills/Thedford and on October 14th at Anselmo-Merna.
