HTF Two-A-Days: McLean County

Sports

CALHOUN, Ky. – (WEHT) After a record-breaking season last year, the Cougars are back hoping to build off of last year’s success.

Zach Wagner’s squad lost 18 seniors to graduation, but say they’re confident in how the younger guys are stepping into new roles so far this season.

“I think they’re hungry, and we also want to be careful and keep them humble. I know that’s cliche, but we want to forget about last year, kinda ride that success a little bit but for the most part, forget about it and understand that we still have to work,” said Wagner. “We need everyone to step up to have success this year, but I’m eerily optimistic.”

The Cougars won their first playoff game in 25 years last season.

Mclean County kicks off the season on the road against Eminence.
