The Colorado City Wolves are midway through their second week of pre-season camp and new head football coach Dan Gainey remain positive about the team’s progress.
“We are running good routes, we are catching the ball well and have good running backs, but our line is yong and we’re bringing them along slowly,” Gainey said. “Our kids continue to play hard and defensively we’re teaching new techniques, which is going to take some time,” he continued.

The scrimmage will start at 6 p.m. in Albany with the JV, followed by the varsity. “It will be a good test for us,” Gainey said.
