Eau Claire (WQOW) -- News 18 Sports kicks off its two-a-day coverage of area high school football practices with stops at Memorial and North.
Eau Claire Memorial fifth-year head coach Paul Kling has five starters back from last year's team, which finished tied for the Big Rivers Conference title and advanced to the WIAA Division playoffs.
"I think expectations are a lot higher," says Kling, "and I think that teams know that our kids have that mentality of wanting to be successful. I think that there are going to be a lot of competitive teams and it's going to be a race at the end of the season to see who's at the top."
The Old Abes have twenty seniors on the roster, and even though there are some new faces in key positions, Kling says he's optimistic.
