Reed Manstedt won three games at Crete last season. Now, he's coaching a team that is coming off its most successful season in program history. Manstedt is the new head coach at Waverly and he's hoping to continue the Vikings momentum.
Waverly went 9-3 in 2018 while reaching the Class B semifinals.
The Vikings have starters back at six positions. They will be younger this fall, but not lacking in enthusiasm. Tyler Brown is the Vikings' top player. He's a 260-pound offensive lineman that started every game last season as a freshman.
Waverly opens the season on August 30th against Seward.
