By Jacob Heid
STEVENS POINT – The Central Wisconsin Wolves will be the newest member of the sporting community in Stevens Point, coming in the spring of 2023.
The new adult Minor League football team is looking for coaches that want to get into coaching or already have experience. Players must be 18 and older or former high school or college players wanting to get back into the game. But, any football experience is welcome. The team president and head coach Ruseevelt Johnson loves the opportunity to come to the area.
“I feel pretty great about having this team in Stevens Point,” he said. “We are looking to start getting businesses to sponsor us.”
The team will play their games on Saturdays between May and July, starting in 2023. The home games will be at Goerke Park Field in Stevens Point. The team is still looking for a league to play in.
For anyone interested in being a part of the team, a meeting will be held on Aug. 3 at 1001 Main Street in Stevens Point. Or, you can contact them on Facebook at “Central Wisconsin Wolves.”
