Kodiak will rely on new backfield to carry offense
From the sideline on Woody Way Field, Jim Schnick called in play after play from a laminated sheet to his quarterback Josh Yavorsky.  It was just a practice scrimmage, but Schnick, Kodiak’s first-year head coach, treated it like the real deal.  “I want to see how well they operate without a coach in the huddle,” said Schnick after last Saturday’s blue/gold game. “They did pretty well. They responded. The first tea...

Off and running
Marcus Dunbar’s goal the first week of cross country practice is to not hurt his athletes too badly. So far, so good. “Alaska is hard because we start so early in the summer, so I am just happy that we had 30 kids here yesterday (Tuesday),” Kodiak’s veteran coach said. “There is another third of our team that is still on vacation, fishing or working.” The purpose of the first week of practice is to shake the dust ...

David Anderson to play for Wisconsin Lutheran this fall
Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago is where David Anderson first encountered the game of football. He spent countless hours with his older brother Nathan in their spacious backyard tossing the pigskin. “His older brother really taught him how to throw and catch the football at a young age,” David’s mother Denise said. Anderson’s church was big into football, and as he grew older the congregation gathered for two...
