Pine City is coming off one of the best years in school history when they finished 9-1, losing to Milaca in the playoffs. There are many holes to fill for the Dragons, especially in the offensive backfield where they lost two starting running backs; Adam Olson and Mike Hansmann.
Nick Cummings, Drew Gerold, and Josh Monson will be asked to carry much of the load out of the backfield this season.
Junior Brickre Fischer will make his first start under center for the Dragons, replacing the departed Nate Wendorf.
Jesse Logan stopped by Dragon practice this week and was able to chat with some of the coaches and players.
