Pine River-Backus cancels varsity football season


August 17, 2018

With only a handful of upperclassmen signed up for the upcoming season, Pine River-Backus High School coaches and officials have decided not to field a varsity football team this fall.

"We are low on numbers," PRB activities director Randy Schwegel said. "We have 22 kids or so. We have only one senior and we have 11 ninth-graders. For the safety of those kids—you know, putting a ninth-grader out there against seniors—we didn't feel it was a wise decision."
