Crandon Playing With Only Four SeniorsSubmitted: 08/18/2014

CRANDON - The Crandon High School football team held practice on Monday at Crandon High School.
They will play only 4 seniors this season.
That's a big difference from last season when the team played 12 seniors. Morgan Krueger was one of them, and rushed for more than 1,000 yards.
The team is looking forward to the new senior group.


"I think a lot of leadership," said Jamie Conway, the head coach at Crandon. "They did some things on their own, working without coaches; they were active in the weight room all summer."
The senior players are taking proactive steps to be good leaders.
"Seniors always try to be out on the field," said Deion Dehart, a senior lineman for Crandon. "We try to motivate each player be at the best that they can do on and off the field."
These seniors believe working hard will produce success, regardless of the age or class of their teammates.
"I think working hard in practice translates to working hard in the game," said Isaiah Doane, a senior lineman for Crandon. "We do that, we are really going to do well and get another conference championship on the banner."
Crandon like other schools in the northern part of the state is switching to a more balanced attack with a mix of running and passing.
"We will throw the ball this year," Conway said. "We will throw the ball this year more than we did last year."
"Passing as much as we run I think will level out the field," Dehart said.
The team looks to put on a show to unite the community. They're hoping to improve off a 6-4 season last year.
"The kids I mean I tell them this all the time, a lot of people play this game through them still and remember that feeling on Friday night," Conway said. "So that's what it is all about."
The Cardinals play Wausaukee on Friday in Crandon.
