Biggest Challenge: Conditioning and mental focus will be a challenge with practices limited to just two weeks before their first game, according to Louzek.

Coach's assessment: "The Rebels are excited to be able to play a season this fall and expect to make the best of a shortened playoff format that will not see a state champion crowned at the end of the season," Louzek said.
