PARK FALLS - A medical mystery turned into a scary diagnosis for a Chequmaegon football player earlier this year.

Thomas Harris ended last season with a concussion, so he thought.

Thomas spent his off-season beating cancer instead of in the weight room. He knew he had a hard battle ahead.

But not only did he conquer the disease, he's also getting to spend his senior year playing his favorite sport.

"Hopefully what I've been through can be motivation for some of teammates," Harris said.

From long hospital stays and chemotherapy, to first downs and putting on that green Screaming Eagles uniform again. Chequamegon quarterback Thomas Harris is back on the gridiron.

PARK FALLS -

On Friday, high school football teams across the state will play their first games.

One Northwoods school almost lost its program last season and is now putting in extra effort to prove themselves.

"It's kind of been a struggle the past few seasons fielding enough players," said Chequamegon head football coach Dan Pearsall.

After low roster numbers and safety issues, the Chequamegon school board nearly cut its football program last season.

However, the Screaming Eagles are getting another chance at 11-man football.

RHINELANDER - Jonus Sabani singlehandedly carved up Great Northern Conference defenses last year.

But Rhinelander High School's star forward won't be back this season, after transferring to Shattuck St. Mary's in Minnesota.

"His lifelong passion is soccer, and that will be the best step for him to reach his goals," Rhinelander head coach Dan Millot said.

Sabani's transfer means the Hodags will re-shape their offense, putting more forwards on the front line instead of having just one striker up top.

MERRILL - Every Sunday a group of people in Merrill play a round of 18 holes.

The twist is, they use discs instead of golf balls.

Kyle Gulke created a disk golf league this summer to try and promote disk golf in the Northwoods.

He encourages anyone to come out and try the game, even if you don't know how to play.

The warmer and rainy weather has really affected the turn out each week.

Gulke hopes interest will grow before winter hits.
