Central football coach raises expectations

Going into his third season, Central football coach Tyson Mengel isn’t afraid to be clear about what the program’s expectations have been in the past and what they need to be moving forward.

Falcons out to turn things around


Win the day. That is the mantra of the Central Falcons football team this season as they look to erase the memory of last year’s 0-9 record.

Falcons fall to SLC tri-champion Panthers


WILMOT — The game wasn’t smooth, negative offensive plays and turnovers were prevalent and the officials made some calls that were — to remain politically correct — confusing to both teams.

But when the clock finally drained to zero on an exceedingly long and bizarre game, the outcome was sweet for the Wilmot football team.
