Chequamegon football trying to prove themselves after school board considers cutting program

On Friday, high school football teams across the state will play their first games.

One Northwoods school almost lost its program last season and is now putting in extra effort to prove themselves.

"It's kind of been a struggle the past few seasons fielding enough players," said Chequamegon head football coach Dan Pearsall.

After low roster numbers and safety issues, the Chequamegon school board nearly cut its football program last season.

However, the Screaming Eagles are getting another chance at 11-man football.

He encourages anyone to come out and try the game, even if you don't know how to play.

The warmer and rainy weather has really affected the turn out each week.

Gulke hopes interest will grow before winter hits.
