Football: Ellsworth roughs up Red Wing in Border Battle


ELLSWORTH – The Ellsworth Panthers don’t care if they’re on the small side. Their plan is they will out-hustle you, out-run you and ultimately, out-play you. 

“We do a lot of conditioning, and in practice, Coach makes us run plays until we get everything right,” said Ellsworth senior running back/defensive back Dennis Schutz. “We run it until our plays are perfect.”
