Last year was a tough season for the Maywood-Hayes Center Wolves. But this season things are looking up. Jeff Erickson, head coach of the Wolves says they will lean on experience and athleticism. "We have a good mix of experienced players that have grown physically over the past year, and an exciting group of young players to learn under them. We will have above average athleticism and hope to shore up some line play to make a foundation to have a successful year."
Looking back at last season for the Wolves, they struggled mightily on the offensive side averaging 15 points per game, but on the defensive side they were solid, allowing just 21 points per game.
The Wolves will have a couple of transfers from Medicine Valley, Hayden Kramer, who was an all-state performer, and Bryce Wolfe will also pack a punch for this Wolf team. Kramer had 52 carries for 411 yards and 11 scores as well as 58 catches for 881 yards and 13 touchdowns.
