    The Wolverines (4-1 overall, 2-1 in the district) did a good job containing the dynamic Johnson – who entered averaging better than 200 total yards combined receiving and rushing per game this season – much of the first half with rotation of bracket coverages and situational awareness.

  • Wolverines make it four in a row

    A balance offense and a smothering defensive game plan helped lift East Mills to its first 4-0 start since 2015 with a 36-6 victory on the road at Bedford in Eight-Man, District 7 football Friday.

    East Mills Co-head coach and defensive coordinator Claude Lang called the Wolverines’ defensive performance “by far” the most complete they’ve had in perhaps two seasons, he said.
