There's 22 players in an 11-man football game.  Doniphan West's entire roster falls three short of that. First year Head Coach Nick Fuemmeler has 19 players to work with after the Mustangs lost 8 players between the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011; but he  wouldn't have it any other way.

"I've got 19 guys, but I've got 19 guys that wanna be here."

Five of those 19 are returning starters on the offensive line.

"They're gonna open some holes for us, we're gonna have some places to run. We're gonna put some points on the board."

They'll need to put up points. Conditioning will be a factor for a squad that plays both sides of the ball.

Doniphan West opens the season at Maur Hill on September, 2nd.
