Nebraska Lawdawgs Release Schedule
Posted: 08 July, 2013
NORFOLK - The Nebraska Lawdawgs announced today that their 2013 Regular season schedule that will see the Lawdawgs opening at home on July 27th at Norfolk, own middle school East. The team is coming off winning its 7th straight division title and is working hard at putting together the final touches on a roster that will capture its 8th straight Division Title.
The season will boast 6 home games and 4 away and will begin later then the team has started over the past few years. “When we first started this 18 years ago we started in August” Commented Coach Taylor “along the way somehow we shifted to late spring and early summer dates, which we think was hurting the program.” The organization feels that over the years, extremely hot ends of June and July’s along with the normal summer focuses of family vacations, graduations, weddings etc have pulled fans and players away from being part of and cheering for the team. This will no doubt drag the season into football season which poses the question of competing with bigger football focuses. “This brings up different challenges, however we feel it’s something we have a better chance of “Working” with” then the challenges of summer football, Finalized Coach Taylor.
The Team continues its push to find more local players to join as it’s over 30 man roster comes from not just the local area but various parts of Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. “We’ve always welcomed the variety of player migration, “explained Coach Taylor “However we want and need more local players to come out and join the team to get us to that championship we desire.”
