Blizzard coping with winless season


GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Blizzard are trying to stay positive, but this much losing isn’t easy on anyone.

“Usually I take it personally a little bit for a couple hours,” said Blizzard quarterback Nate Wara. “Then it’s over with so I kind of brush it off. On to the next one.”

The team is 0-10 on the season with four regular season games remaining. They are trying to avoid the first winless season in franchise history.

“Being a football coach, you’re going to take losing personal,” said head coach Tommie Williams, who took over the team after an 0-6 start to the season. “[You ask] ‘What could I have done better, what can I do to improve?’”

The team does, however, feel like they’re close. The Blizzard have been on the wrong end of a few blowouts, but 3 of their losses were by 6 points or fewer. That leaves the team confident they will get over the hump.

“”It’s going to feel good to celebrate with the team once we achieve that goal,” said Green Bay defensive lineman Junior Aumavae. “It’s going to be a great feeling.”

The Blizzard take on Cedar Rapids Friday night, an 8-2 team with the third-best record in the entire Indoor Football League.
