The high school football season is a little more than a month away.
As kickoff looms, Monticello High School's football program is in the midst of an active offseason. Coach Cully Welter indicates he uses practice and 7-on-7 competitions to familiarize his team with the playbook.
The Sages will be moving a lot of new faces into key positions this season and so for Coach Welter, it's about finding out how the kids and their talents fit into what he wants to do.
Coach Welter is a Hall of Fame coach but that doesn't mean he isn't trying to get better. Coach Welter has a diverse playbook and admits he struggles with having too much going on in his playbook.
The Sages host St. Joe-Ogden Friday, August 26 at 7 pm to open the regular season.
