A return to their winnings ways.  That's the goal for the Sartell-St. Stephen Sabres.  Head Coach Scott Hentges joined me on WJON.  The Sabres were 1-8 last season but have already started this season 1-0 after posting a 42-21 win over Tech last week on week zero.

Hentges says they have good numbers of participation at all levels and some key players back this season including his son, quarterback Cole Hentges.  Hentges missed last season due to injury.  Cole started half the varsity games as a freshman and brings a wealth of experience to the position entering his senior season. Hentges says they have lots of experience on the offense line with 3 returning senior starters.


Hentges says this is a senior led group and they've been working hard dating back to youth football, continuing through 7 on 7 tournaments and middle school football.  He says he feels really good about this team and enjoys coaching them.
