Spring practice for the Pawhuska football squad has ramped up, and for the first time in a while, there are some big expectations with the Huskies this fall.
Coach Matt Hennesy took over a program last year that was 0-10 in 2017. Last year, Hennesy coached the Huskies to a 6-5 record and their first playoff appearance since 2014. Pawhuska only graduates one senior from last years playoff team. That is only one reason Hennesy expects to see more success this year.
The Huskies have about 35 players out for spring ball this year, compared to 12 when Hennesy took the reigns last year.
Hennesy says he has seen a culture shift in the program and he says that change should result in more wins.
Pawhuska opens the season on Friday, Aug. 30 at Kellyville.
