Names change, goals remain the same for GSL football

Turnovers are to be avoided in football, but roster turnover in high school football are unavoidable.

While the Glencoe-Silver Lake football team contends with the loss of several key contributors from back-to-back state participating squads, the goal for this autumn’s edition of Panthers football remains the same.

“The goal is always to return to state and go to the Prep Bowl,” coach Scott Tschimperle said.

GSL was a state quarterfinalist in 2013 and a state semi-finalist last year. After coming within one step – one point – of playing in the Class AAA state championship, this autumn the Panthers want to roar into TCF Bank Stadium this November and play for a title.

“Our seniors want to go one step further (than 2014), but it is a long process,” Tschimperle said. “We just focus on next Friday’s game.”
