ECC top contenders

The Ellsworth COmmunity College football team is full of relative unknowns with a nearly brand new roster of talent and first year coaches. Those hoping to make an impact this season include: Magnum Hamilton, JaQuon Nicholson, Carion Scott, AJ Payne, Sydney Audiger, Will Weidemann and Logan Ward.

For a measuring stick of success, look no further than a team’s wins or losses.

For first year Ellsworth Community College head coach Mitchell Kleinschrodt, he understands that people are going to look at those numbers to determine how well the team fared this fall. For him, it’s about one play, one time.


Area athletes Magnum Hamilton, Logan Ward and returner Will Weidemann hope to make be difference makers for the Panthers offense this fall. ECC has just five players that played a down last year.
