The Shelby Whippets under second year head coach Erik Will have opened preseason drills as they prep for week one vs Madison at Skiles Field. Will is looking to build depth at every position especially with the younger players getting them to the point where they can compete. Another aspect of the off season has been to change the mind set of the players to be tough mentally as well as physically.

The last three seasons have been to says the least rough for the Whippets going a combined 3-27. Shelby will be looking for their first winning season since 2010, when they finished at 8- 3 advancing to the playoffs. The Whippets will open at home vs Madison on August 29th at W.W.Skiles Field. The Rams have a three year winning streak against Shelby with the Hounds last win against Madison coming in the 2010 opener at Skiles 40-20. Madison won last season 54-6.
