Mavericks opened up their home season last night against Westhope/Newburg/GlenburnWesthope/Newburg/Glenburn on Tuesday, August 26th

By LaVonne Erickson
The Mohall Lansford Sherwood (MLS) Mavericks opened up their 2014 season last night, Tuesday, August 26th, when they hosted the Westhope/Newburg/Glenburn Sioux in Mohall. Result of that game was not known by press time. On Saturday, August 30th, MLS will travel to New Town to play the Eagles in a Region 3 match-up.

MLS hopes to improve on their 1-8 season from last year, and will again be coached by Cale Peterson. Coach Peterson played at the University of Mary from 2004 to 2007 and was named Academic All Conference in 2007. From 2008 to 2009 he coached MSUM and from 2009 to 2011 he coached at the University of Mary. He became the Mavericks’ assistant coach in 2011 and co-head coach in 2012, before taking over the head coaching position in 2013. Coach Peterson will be assisted by Boyd Southam, Travis Fritel, Cody Beck, and Scott Erickson.

The Mavericks are again going to be a very young football team. However, many of the players have gained valuable experience on last year’s team. MLS returns eight players that either started or received valuable playing time last season. Coach Peterson stated, “The kids have worked very hard in the off season with almost 90% of the team participating in strength training year round. The team is physically ready to win games. Now it becomes a mental task.”

Players out for this year’s team include: Seniors - Connor Brackenbury, Trevor Evanger, Cole Feland, and Randy Kelly; Juniors - Trey Holsten, Tyler Schrupp, Jesse Mott, Tanner Driscoll, Mason Nehring, Jacob Smith, Matthew Lafferty, Zach Urfer, and Seth Southam; Sophomores: Statler Olson, Zavure Frech, Cabe Radzwill, Berkley Santos, and Talon Thompson; and Freshmen - Erik McIntyre, Will Smith, Cole Southam, Trevor Savelkoul, Tanner Lembke, Aaron Voigt, Beau Driscoll, Levi Feland, and Kody Wagonhoffer.

Coach Peterson feels that the Mavericks’ offensive line should be one of the team’s strengths if they stay healthy. MLS should be deep at the running back position, as well as the defensive line. However, a concern for the Mavericks is the depth on the offensive line.

The Mavericks return two All Region players from last year. Trevor Evanger was named All Region and Cole Feland received honorable mention status on the All Region Team. As for leadership, MLS looks for Trevor Evanger to be a team leader, as well as many of the other players.

When asked who the Mavericks feel will be favorites in the Region they named Westhope/Newburg/Glenburn, Towner/Granville/Upham, and Divide County. “W/N/G should be very good, as they return a lot of players with a lot of experience. TGU has a strong program and should have very talented skill positions. Divide County has a large senior class and should be competitive again,” commented Coach Peterson.

Each year the team sets a goal for their season, and this year was no different. When asked what their goal was and some of the things they would have to do to realize those goals, the players decided it was to make the playoffs. Coach Peterson said that in order for the team to ... (To read this article and many more, see this week's edition of the Renville County Farmer.)


This past week, the MLS Maverick football team received the ALS Ice Bucket challenge from the Westhope/Newburg/Glenburn Sioux football team. They conquered that challenge, as the Mohall Fire Department brought out the fire trucks and the team lined up to be hosed down with ice cold water. It wasn’t a very warm day for the challenge either, as you will notice the clouds, along with a rainbow in the right of the photo.

Before completing the challenge, the Mavericks announced that they were now challenging the Mavericks’ Volleyball Team, the Towner/Granville/ Upham Titan football team; and Grant County/Flasher team coached by Jamie Krenz.

The ALS ice bucket challenge is becoming very popular in this area, as well as in North Dakota and around the United States.
