Written by

WALWORTH COUNTY TODAY -- Coaches say that handling success oftentimes is tougher than swallowing losing. Apparently Lance Leipold has patented the elixir he’s been selling to his University of Wisconsin-Whitewater football team.

Leipold’s Warhawks have won NCAA Division III national championships in five of his seven seasons since replacing Hall of Famer Bob Berezowitz, putting them second only to the dynasty of Mount Union (Ohio), which has earned 11 trophies.

College football: Bucs seek to be more competitive

Written by

STATELINE NEWS -- Seth Duerr knows he can’t sugarcoat many of the numbers: Beloit College’s football team struggled mightily in 2013, posting 1-8 and 1-9 records in the Midwest Conference and overall, respectively.

And that starts with rejuvenating a porous defense, which is the first-year Buccaneer coach’s specialty. Duerr was a first-team linebacker all four years at the College of Wooster (Ohio) and then served as defensive coordinator at his alma mater for seven years and two more at Tiffin University.

But that’s appropriate, because it started with her mom, Linda, and balloons -- literally.

STATELINE NEWS -- Rodney Wedig isn’t perfect. His first team as a high school football head coach finished 0-9. However, his third team at Almond-Bancroft qualified for the WIAA playoffs and his eighth and final group earned the school’s first two postseason victories in reaching Level 3 in 2002.

“I only had one year of coaching experience and they were talking about pulling the plug on their program,” Wedig said recently about the Division 7 Eagles, who enjoyed only five winning seasons in 40 years before his arrival in 1995. “Everybody talks about numbers in D-4 or D-1 … we needed every able-bodied player we could find because we had 16 or 17 kids, so they were playing special teams and everything. But when we went to the playoffs, both communities closed down and went to the games. That’s small-school Wisconsin football.”

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Many of the faces have changed from both sides of the river. The question remains: Who will make a name for themselves and enter Janesville high school football lore?
