(COVINGTON, La.) — The Wolves’ defense won last Friday night’s annual scrimmage against the offense as football returned to Hunter Stadium. Known as the Pie Bowl, the game was delayed almost five months because of COVID-19 restrictions.

The Wolves are a young team this year, with many players taking bigger roles on both sides of the ball. Returning quarterback Grant Billson said that he looks to take his team to the state championship. “We have a great team this year that has what it takes to get us there,” Billson said.

With the loss of Wayne Galloway and Michael Crockett on defense, younger players will have to step up.  “We have the potential to be one of the best defenses in the state if we do our jobs,” Linebacker Danny Sears said.

The team’s first regular game of the season will be played on Oct. 2 against Destrehan High.
