As the Wolves starting quarterback, Wolf threw for 147 yards and rushed for 165 for a total of 312 yards of total offense alone.

Power is only available to the table by running an extension cord to it, which is a safety hazard.The press box will also provide better opportunities for Hastings to host regional and state level tournaments at the field.
