ALPENA, MI – The WBKB Sports team continues visiting the North Star League to get an inside look on teams’ preparation for the upcoming 2022 football season.

The Alpena Wildcats are coming off an 2-7 season and are more motivated than ever to make improvements. With a young core roster, the Wildcats underclassmen look to the senior players, like tight end Colt Gray, to lead them to success. “We had a great group of seniors last year and we’re trying to continue that leadership,” said Gray.

Head coach, Eric Mitchell, has high hopes for the upcoming season. “We want to make the playoffs, we want to host a game,” said Mitchell. “That’s our major goal.”

Keeping their mutual goal in mind, the Wildcats face off in their season opener against the Heritage Hawks on August 25th.
