WICHITA, Kansas – Losing nine key players to season-ending injuries last year, the Wichita Southeast football team looks to bounce back from its 1-8 campaign in the Greater Wichita Athletic League.
Starting a new chapter, the Golden Buffaloes welcome new head coach Mike Schartz this season. He was the former head coach at Campus and Dodge City. Schartz also served as defensive coordinator last year with Southeast.
Settling in for his first season at the helm, Schartz says, “It’s been an awesome feeling. They’ve been in the weight room. It’s their third year with me, so we have that connection going. They’re just ready to take over as seniors.”
The Buffaloes returning core includes starting quarterback Tarik Adkins, who’s back from a knee injury.
While the program’s main turnout is the freshman squad, coaches and players are optimistic thanks in part to Southeast’s dedicated group of upperclassmen on the roster.
The Golden Buffaloes will put their flex/Wing-T offense to the test on September 4th, when they open the 2015 season against Wichita Heights.
