As the season-opener nears, the Pella football team is trying to quickly bring itself up to game speed for what they hope will be a strong start toward another successful season.  Little Dutch head coach Jay McKinstrey says the defense is further along in understanding the schemes than the offense is, but says that is typical for any football season. 

He adds that the team’s physical conditioning and strength is excellent, thanks to a lot of hard work in the offseason, and hopes the team’s effort can help compensate for a lack of varsity experience at a number of positions. 

The Pella football team opens its varsity schedule at home against Newton on Friday.
