Even though the circumstances are different from a year ago, the Archbishop Murphy football team is coming in with the same hunger for success.
That’s a positive development as far as coach Jerry Jensen is concerned.
Heading into the 2016 season, the Wildcats had something to prove.
Archbishop Murphy returned almost all of its players from a team that suffered a heartbreaking loss to Tumwater in the 2A state semifinals.
“The kids felt and the coaches felt that we had an opportunity to win and we didn’t,” Jensen said. “So that left a chip on the shoulders of the kids.”
