Went up to Wausau East last night to check out Lumberjack football practice. Yes...its that time of year again. East will open the season this Thursday with a game vs Wisconsin Rapids at Thom Field. New coach Tom Tourtillot seems to be a high energy guy and just maybe the guy to bring some stability to an East program that has seen 4 coaches in the last five years. East does have some holes to fill from last years squad but also returns alot of varsity experience. They also have some new players including some explosive speed that bodes well for the offense. I'll be in the booth for my 20th season of Lumberjack sports starting Thursday night on Foxsports Radio AM1390 & FM 93.9. We are also introducing live streaming this season on foxsportswausau.com.
