Wildcat Nation

By Lyndzy Flewelling

Woodbury Central senior Nic Scheelhaase has been chosen as football Athlete of the Week by Coach Manker.

  According to Coach Manker, Nic played a vital role Sept. 5 during the defensive win against Unity Christian. Nic is one of the select few players in WC history that got a throwing touchdown, running touchdown, and catching touchdown all in one game. Coach Manker explains, “Nic has been a great leader by example on the field all year.” Then he adds, “We are so glad he has rejoined our Wildcat football program.”

Woodbury Central football coach Kelly Manker expects a lot from his team this season. “We definitely have high expectations but realize that with the schedule we have, we have to take one game at a time and improve weekly," Coach says.

Coach couldn't choose just one or two top players: “Our whole senior class is the best. Not only in quantity but quality.” This year's senior class has some of the biggest kids on the line, he says.

“Every year is different to a certain extent," Coach adds. "I do know this group of seniors leads by example and, as a staff, we appreciate that.”

Team members by grade include freshmen, 11; sophomores, 13; juniors, 3; and seniors, 12. “I definitely have a great group of young men and I have fun going to practice every day," Coach says. "Hopefully they get the wins they deserve.”
