Whippets Football Reloaded
Shelby Returns To The Gridiron
June 18, 2020
As summer kicks off so does football training,conditioning and workouts for the Shelby Whippets. With a huge concern for Covid-19, the players, staff and all personnel look for one common goal, the safety for each other.
However, that doesn’t come at a sacrifice of one's work ethic.
The Whippets have been putting in the grind even when times get tough.
Coming off an impressive 8-4 season (1-1 in playoffs) the Whippets want to continue to build on their winning ways.
Shelby running back Owen Fisher stated “ We got a lot of returning guys, our front line is almost all returning except for one senior last year. I have pretty high hopes for us, we have a solid team at least so far. We got some new guys coming up. I'm expecting some pretty great stuff out of them.”
It seems as if for the Whippets, it’s more of a regroup and not a rebuild.
Shelby looks forward to hosting their home opener on August 21st against the Norwalk Truckers.
Cross your fingers Whippets fans, as of now there is no guarantee football will be here come the season kickoff, however, we all can hope.
