Rutledge reflects on football season

Charger football ended its season Thursday night with a 42-0 loss to Jackson Heights.

While the team struggled to a 1-8 record, coach Jess Rutledge saw a lot of progress for the football program.

How did the football program move forward this season?

“Our offseason work that was put in exceeded any previous season since I have been at Wabaunsee. Our numbers in the weight room, at team camp, and at our thud camps were all higher than last year. Our athletes' maxes also increased a phenomenal amount from the summer of 2018. That needs to continue to improve, but we are most definitely on the right track. We also had a lot of younger players step into varsity playing positions, and that is a great thing to have for the upcoming season.
