A year ago, the Shawnee Wolves were stepping up into the land of the unknown, Class 6A Division II football. The Wolves scratched and clawed their way into two district wins, showing that they can compete at the higher level.

Dre Evans and Karson Conway appear to be engaged in a battle for the starting role. “They are working hard and they keep improving,” Brown said.
