Wakeland Access

A Historic Win! - The Wakeland Wolverines come out victorious, beating Woodrow Wilson High School 38-7. Beating Wilson was probably one of the best feelings I’ve had with football. We haven’t won a playoff game in over 4 years, so that was another goal that we had set as leaders on the team. To be able to accomplish that and see our hard work be rewarded is like no other, C. Myer said. The Wolverines will be playing their second playoff game against Highland Park on Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Eagle Stadium in Allen, Tx.
