Trever Case hopes to usher in new era of West High football

Sioux City West hasn't had a winning season in more than 10 years.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Change has been a common theme for the Sioux City West football program. Trever Case enters as the teams third head coach in four seasons and inherits a program that's struggled, winning only five games over that span.
"They've had a few coaching changes over the past few years so this isn't something new to them," Case said. "It is a challenge and we've just talked about taking things one day at a time and getting better each day and they've really bought into that."
The Wolverines return nine senior starters from a season ago. But the key to success in 2012? The offensive line.
"The faster we get our line and team gelled, the more successful we'll be," the first year head coach added.
Coach Case has implemented a strategy to speed up that process of pipeline development.
"Coach has us hold hands and I feel like it's a good thing," senior James Beacom said. "It really kind of brings us together as if we're a team."
He also brings with him a new offensive plan.
"Move the ball quick. Move quick. Move fast. That's about it," quarterback Dylan Urquidi said. "We're just trying to get the offense down. Get a nice little rhythm."
And with a new coach and philosophy, the Wolverines are ready to usher in a new era of football.
"It's going to take a lot of dedication," Beacom said. "Coach says we have to buy into the season and I think that's really what we have to do. We have to go all in, the entire season."
