- Football fans know the NFL draft is this week. But there's also a new chance to get your pigskin fix, in the Northwoods. Semi-Pro football has arrived in Rhinelander.
The Tri-County Timber Wolves will be making their debut this week.
They're a new member of the Mid-West football league. The Timber Wolves are a non-profit, community based organization. It's full fledged tackle football, with an 8 week regular season.
Players are 18 and older and come from many different backgrounds.
The Timber Wolves first game is Saturday, May 10 at Rhinelander High School at 7 pm. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children.
They still have plenty of positions to fill.
