Braaten Key to Sioux Having an Encore

Posted: Updated:

A lot of football teams can't match previous year's successes. Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn hopes to go away from that trend.

The Sioux reached the state championship game last season falling in the title game to Hazen. A move down to 9-man will open the field up for Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn who like to use a multiple weapon attack on offense. The guy at the controls of that offense is quarterback Hunter Braaten. Braaten's a senior this year.and has improved each season he's been with the Sioux.

"I think things have really slowed down for him. He might be a little quicker, a little faster and stuff this year. Maybe a little bit heavier. The biggest thing about him is that he's very, very fluid. He's got a great grasp of the offense and defense. He sees the field well," coach Tom Nesvold says.

The Sioux open their season tonight against Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood.
