THREE TO SEE

Luke Amble, running back / safety

Replaces an all-league running back this year; will make an impact on both sides of the ball.

Matthew Einert, tight end

The sophomore has a solid frame, and coach Fiala is excited to get him the ball this season.

Cameron Kohlruss, quarterback / defensive back

Second year as a starter at QB, but first year under OC Lawson’s zone run scheme.

OUTLOOK

It will be a completely new look for Cedarcrest football in 2019. First-year head coach John Fiala hopes to turn around a program that hasn’t seen the playoffs since 1996. 

Last year’s crew was very senior-heavy, but was unable to emerge as a dominant program in the NWC Lake Division. 

The Red Wolves lose three all-league selections moving into this season, and will boast a very young core. 

Coach Fiala says that Cedarcrest will be “focusing on building a fundamentally strong offense, defense and special teams."

The Red Wolves hope to break the spell this season, and just might have the talent to do something special.
