history last season.

The Phantoms hope it was just the first step. Going back and winning a championship is the next one.

“I think it’s almost like we have to get back now,” senior linebacker Zak Rottier said. “It almost gives us more motivation that we can get there and knowing it’s possible.”

The Phantoms have a few other things to accomplish before they worry about a return to Madison.

They are seeking a fifth consecutive Bay Conference championship after becoming the first team in the league to ever win at least a share of four straight.

Like the past few years, they will enter the season with a target on their back in the nine-team Bay and will need a few new faces to step up if they want the streak to continue.

“We are going to try,” West De Pere coach Bill Turnquist said. “We have had four in a row. It’s tough getting four in a row. To get another one makes it more difficult, I think, to stay there. Everybody is after you. Somewhere along the line, maybe the ball won’t bounce your way. But we are hoping it does.” (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)

The West De Pere football team has taken the tradition to a new level of success the last few years.  Should be an exciting year for the Phantoms and their fans.
