Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) – The Blugolds football team is officially done with spring ball after wrapping up their practice yesterday, and the excitement surrounding the program is palpable.

Everything seems to be gelling under first-year head coach Wesley Beschorner, who joined UW-Eau Claire back in February, and the team is ready to get the season underway.

“I’m most excited for the first game,” says senior linebacker Sam Romanski. “To see the team dynamic when we run out of that tunnel and all the people at Carson Park. I’m really excited to get back on the field, even in practice, and start competing again.”

This is a program on the rise; last season the Blugolds had their best season since 2012. Everyone is excited to see the level that this group can accomplish.

“The kids are hungry, the players want to win,” says Beschorner. “And it’s our job as coaches and their job as players to produce a winner. Everyone that surrounds us, that’s our job. If our kids have great knowledge of the game of football, it’s shocking how well you can do.”

Blugolds open the season on September 7, hosting Loras College.
