Former Husker Steve Warren is starting his third year as the head football coach at Omaha Northwest. The Huskies won three games last year, the most in at least the last 14 years.
But Warren's team only returns two starters, both on the offensive side of the ball.
"This year would be great for us to take that next step," Warren said. "But at the end of the day, it's to get the players better and to develop them so that we're not just getting ready for this year but for next year and start to build this freshman class and sophomore class and really start to establish ourselves down there."
Omaha Northwest opens the season Friday at Lincoln High.
