DEPEW, N.Y.- Last year was a tough season for the Niagara Falls Wolverines. Head coach Don Bass said “I have high expectations this year I didn’t say that last year.”
Bass was on target. The Wolverines were 2-7 in 2013. Bass said his team is going to be young but that “the 19 JV players I brought up last year have been working hard and I think we’re going to be all right. We’re not starting fresh, we’re kind of building on what we had at the end of last year. ” Bass spoke with Two on Your Side’s Jonah Javad at the Ad Pro Lions Club All Star game at Depew high school.
Right now Bass believes his defense is ahead of his offense. “we kind of modified a few things and we’re going to be a little more aggressive and use our speed to our advantage.”
Bass said he’s counting on running back Shaoolin McCray and offensive lineman Anthony Vargas to provide leadership for the Wolverines.
Niagara Falls opens the season Saturday September 6 against their rival, Niagara Wheatfield.
