AMHERST - A young, fledgling Wolfpack was introduced to Cumberland County last year and, if the latest numbers are any indication, the pack is proving to be robust.
“We have a lot more kids out,” Cumberland Minor Football president and coach, Travise Dowe, said. “We have 40 new players on the team, which is just spectacular.
“The challenge right now is making sure we have enough coaches for the amount of kids because, potentially, we could have almost 100 children involved in the football team this year,” Dowe added.
Cumberland County Wolfpack football started from scratch in the spring of 2010 and began their 2011 training sessions a month ago throughout the county.
“We’ve done eight sessions so far and every session we added new kids to the team,” Dowe said. “There hasn’t been one night where we haven’t added at least one new kid to the team.”
