ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The new head football coach at Roseburg High School is warmed up for his first Southwest Conference game.

Dave Heuberger came to Roseburg after four seasons as head coach for the Springfield Millers.

He says his energy on the field carries through to the team's energy under the Friday.

"(We) put a little pressure on them during practice so that games become easy on a Friday night and so we're constantly trying to keep that energy up and it takes a lot of energy to play in the Southwest Conference on a Friday night, at a high level,” Heuberger says, “and we want them in that mode in practice where they're practicing that way."

The Indians are 0-2 overall this season.

The league opener is at home Friday night (Sept. 16) against Grants Pass. Kickoff at 7 p.m.
