Whitehall excited about the upcoming season

The Whitehall football team has a few holes to fill, and big holes at that. But the Zephyrs still think they'll be among the LVC's elite this fall.

Last season ended for Whitehall in a wild loss in a playoff game up north in overtime. A shootout that had the scoreboard operator worn out at the end. That loss cost them a berth in the District title round, and now the goal is to get there this year. The Zephyrs have some key positions that they have to figure out if they're going to be elite again. Quarterback is one obviously with the graduation of Nick Shafnisky who made a lot of plays. But that's not the only spot. And while the unknown can be a little scary for coaches, Whitehall's coaches and players are using it as an opportunity instead.
