The Prescott Curley Wolves held its media day on its home field at 9:00 a.m. sharp as the team posed for pictures and the coaching staff were available for questions.
After the complete varsity team, including groupings by class, were complete and the junior team and cheerleaders were posing, Coach Brian Glass told me the varsity team had had a good summer. With the exception of Colton Arnold, who will be healing for at least a month more from an ankle injury, and a couple hamstring pulls, the injury bug has not stung the Wolves.
“The last couple of weeks, we’ve really improved,” Glass said. “Right now we’re looking for more depth on offensive and defensive lines. And we feel like we’re starting to get there. The defensive lines have really come on the last couple of days.”
As for the guys who handle the ball and those who try to steal it from the opponent, Glass is optimistic. “We feel really good about our skill guys, both sets of skill, from the linebackers and defensive backs to the running backs, wide receivers, quarterbacks. We felt really good about them all summer.”
This season the Curly Wolves are going for their sixth state title and fourth conference title in a row. Their campaign starts in War Memorial stadium August 23 against Bismarck with kickoff at 7:00 p.m.
