Red Robins football season ready to kick off after 'Meet the Robins' event
space
Thursday marked the “official” beginning to high school football for Red Robin fans as the Antigo Gridiron Club held its annual “Meet the Robins” at Schofield Stadium. The event gave supporters the opportunity to get their first look at the 2014 squad.

This seasons roster boasts 33 strong players but that larger number comes at a price. With 20 returning veterans, nine of which are seniors, the junior varsity program will not be implemented. On a positive note, the freshman squad numbers 30 as well, giving promise to the program’s future.

“We have had very productive practice sessions so far,” stated coach Matt Weberpal. “Our guys came together as a team through camp, and I have found unselfish players who put their team ahead of themselves.”

Leading the team are seniors, Dan Spaude, Tony Libit, Jesse Homp, Aeric Berner, Jed Weix, Michael Bradley, Nate Howard, John Monk and Jonathon Conklin. Bolstering the team are returning players, Caleb Hunter, Alex Nagel, Elijah Wickersheim, Max Nowinsky, Cody Below, Hayden Groot, Zach Levis, Jake Fleischman, Ben Jansen, Ryan Larson, Matt Elbe, Alex Jagla, Colin Klemann and Devon Brisby.

Rounding out the roster are, Nico Oreskovic, Luke Berner, Qwan Bussey, Will Dixon, Noah Nicholson, Hunter Cornelius, Justin Koszarek, Max Kleisch, Mitchell Schroepfer and Hunter Kirsch.

“I’m excited for the season with a group like this.” Weberpal added. “I think we can accomplish a lot this year with the hgh character of our athletes. They play together and understand their roles within the team.”

Hometown fans will spend a fair amount of time on the road as the Robins will host three times. The team’s only home games are on Sept. 5, Sept. 19 and Oct. 3. The entire schedule is as follows:
