The Ben Wolfe era begins Friday night when the St. Louis Park Orioles open their 2013 season by hosting the Jackson County Central Huskies in a 7 PM game.
Wolfe replaced Vince Varpness as head coach after he left for a coaching position at St. Olaf College.
The Orioles are led by quarterback Quinn Livdahl, who split time at quarterback last season with Parker Stennes. The big question on offense for St. Louis Park is who start at running back since last year's featured back Kashif Hayes graduated.
As for Jackson County Central, the Huskies, who lost in last season's Class AA semifinals to Moose Lake/Willow River doesn't have the numbers that St. Louis Park has but they still have a number of players who were on last year's state playoff team.
It's the first time the two schools have played each other as they take advantage of "Zero Week", meaning that both teams will be off next week. It could be an interesting non conference matchup.
