Red Robins on the practice Field
space
Antigo High School’s Red Robin football squad hit the practice field this morning, getting a jump on the 2014 fall sports season.

Head coach Matt Weberpaul is excited to see things get underway.

“We’re young on both sides of the ball,” Weberpaul said. “Our returners have some valuable varsity experience and we hope to pick up on where we left off late last season.”

The annual Antigo Gridiron Club’s “Meet the Robins” will take place at Schofield Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 14, but the Robins won’t be home often after that, with a slim three-game home schedule.

The official start to the season comes on Friday, Aug. 22 when the Robins travel to its first of two games versus the Rhinelander Hodags. On the road Aug. 29, Antigo will pay a visit to Menominee, Mich. before its first home appearance Sept. 5 versus Ashland.

Week four takes the Robins to Mosinee while Sept. 19 is Homecoming against Merrill. Returning to the road Sept. 26, Antigo heads to Lakeland Union High School in Minocqua.

The annual Bell Game is slated at Schofield Stadium on Oct. 3, when the Robins host the Hodags for the home season capper. Antigo visits Medford on Oct. 10 and Mondovi Oct. 17 for its only 5 p.m. start time.

“Our guys have worked hard through the offseason and it should be a wide open conference this year with very few returning All-Conference selections,” Weberpaul added.
