Cobber Football looks ahead to 2019 season
The Concordia Cobbers football team is winding down the first week of practice and Tuesday the Cobbers met with the media to discuss the upcoming season.
And what a season it will be – at least looking at the schedule. The Cobbers will open the season on the road at Wisconsin-La Crosse before opening the home portion of the schedule against six-time National Champion Wisconsin-Whitewater.
"Non-conference is so important to prepare us for our league. When you start now with a Wisconsin-La Crosse at their place, a playoff type contender type team and then Whitewater. I mean six of the last 12 national titles have gone to them, you know, that's huge for us,” Cobber Head Coach Terry Horan said.
“But they're there for a reason. They're there to prepare us for our league because that's the most important part of our season."
Horan called the two non-conference games the toughest it’s been. He’s now entering his 19th season as the head coach at Concordia.
The Cobbers ended 2018 5-5 and return four starters on each side of the ball.
