Bucks Look To Bounce Back YHS Coming Off First Losing Season In 13 Years BY JEREMY HOECK jeremy.hoeck@yankton.net There’s already a different feel to the Yankton High School football team this fall. That’s what players and coaches would tell you, at least. After a 3-7 season a year ago (the program’s first losing season in 13 years), the Bucks maintain that the chemistry of the roster is stronger and that certain areas that struggled last year already look stronger. What exactly feels different? “Just the morale we have this year,” senior lineman Cole Diedrichsen said. “We didn’t have quite the season we wanted last year, but we really want to get stuff done this year and have fun doing it.” Among the reasons the 2016 campaign didn’t pan out like the Bucks had hoped had just as much to do with what happened before the season as it did during the season, players said. “There were things that weren’t done in the offseason last year,” senior lineman Lance Haak said, “and that’s part of the reason we weren’t as successful as we wanted to be.” With that in mind, the 25 seniors on this year’s roster have taken charge. “The best thing so far this year is that we have some very good senior leadership,” said head coach Arlin Likness, who begins his 19th season at the helm. “How good we are, we’ll find out when we play our first game,” he added. “But I think we’ve got some positive things going on.” An area of focus after last season, Likness pointed out, was the need for the offense to become consistent on the ground and through the air — and therefore not be one-dimensional. Last year, for example, the Bucks averaged 76.7 rushing yards and 161 passing yards per game.
