2012 Season Preview: Tragedy, depth will best the toughness of New Richmond football team
With 30 players in grades 10-12, the New Richmond football team knows every member of their squad is being counted upon to contribute in the 2012 season.
The low number of players isn't lowering the Tigers' expectations. Tiger coach Jason Eckert said he believes the team can be a contender in the Middle Border Conference.
"If we stay healthy, I still expect us to compete toward the top of our conference, to be a playoff team," Eckert said.
