OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Edmond Santa Fe Wolves are settling into the routine of second-year head coach Bruce Gowen. Last year’s 3-7 record wasn’t what he was hoping for, but it could have been the necessary transition to have the winning team he’s banking on this season.

“I do some things differently, the kids took a little while to get used to,” Gowen said.

The senior class wants to end things on a higher note than last year’s three-win record.

“We always talk about and hear about tradition and legacy at Santa Fe,” quarterback Paul Bronson said. “That’s what we plan on getting back to this year, get back to winning.”

The team upped its summer workout regimen in an effort to bulk up and get conditioned for the hot, autumn games.

“It’s pushing up a lot harder than what we’re used to, but in a good way,” linebacker Brady Bell said.

That conditioning will hopefully come in handy in week one’s matchup against their rivals, the Edmond Memorial Bulldogs.

“That’s the OU-Texas,” Bell said.

The team will face some pretty stiff competition throughout district, including Lawton and Mustang.

“They know any one Friday night might be the difference between going home or going on,” Gowen said.
