A Young McFarland Football Team Takes a Big Step in Week 1

Coach Paul Ackley doesn't mind that his team features several sophomores and juniors in the mix along with his core of seniors leading the program, since the experiences they earn in 2017 will help them in the future. If the future is now, the McFarland Spartans certainly have found something to build on, as they hung with an East Troy team that's regarded as having one of the Rock Valley's best lines on both sides of the ball in a conference filled with outstanding linemen. While the Spartans lost 47-42 after leading by 15 at halftime, Ackley is ready for the next game, a Friday contest with another team sporting some talented underclassmen of their own, Edgerton.
