Packers Open Season Tuesday in New Prague

3 Dec

The 2011-12 Austin Packers kick off their quest for a March trip to Williams Arena with a journey to New Prague on Tuesday, Dec. 6 to take on the defending Section 1AAA champion Trojans.

The Packers are coming off their third straight winning season, having finished tied for fourth in the Big 9 last year with a 11-7 record, and 14-12 overall.  They return three starters who are still underclassmen, with juniors Joe Aase and Tom Aase, who were all-conference selections last year, along with sophomore Zach Wessels. A strong group of seniors including Goliath Oboyo, Nathan Schwab, Zach Vierkandt, Dan Gatbel and Ryan Larson, along with juniors Tommy Olmsted and Colin Weisert and sophomore Bret Lukes round out a roster with high expectations.

We hope you’ll show up in person for as many games as possible. See the Packers’ schedule for the season and track their progress on the site.

We have several options for you to stay up to date with the Packers, aside from the Austin Daily Herald, Post-Bulletin, KAAL-TV and the frequent KAUS AM 1480 broadcasts:
