Doug Wolter: Things I think when my mind wanders
Random thoughts: --- I can’t remember a time when both the Worthington Trojans boys basketball team and the Worthington Trojans girls basketball team started a season with as many losses as they have now. At the moment, the WHS boys are 0-3 and the WHS girls are 1-3. Never —...

Doug Wolter: Looking back...and ahead
The fall sports season is escaping, as quickly as the optimism of Twins fans in the spring. Very soon, area high schools will begin the transition to winter sports. So before winter strikes like a snowball in the face, here are a few lingering thoughts from the season passing, plus...

Doug Wolter: Huskies-Arrows rematch is for all the marbles
Jackson County Central football coach Tom Schuller is a Detroit Lions fan, so he knows all about comebacks. The Lions won their last two NFL games with remarkable second-half comebacks, both of which undoubtedly brought a smile to the face of the longtime Huskies mentor. No doubt...

Doug Wolter: Luverne football focused and motivated
There aren’t too many things you can really count on these days, but you can pretty much hang your hat on the prospect of winning football seasons for the Luverne Cardinals. Cardinal fans have gotten so used to cheering on their team in section championship games that they were...

Doug Wolter: A new season, a new set of issues
In high school sports, every new season presents a new set of issues. In my view, two programs are especially intriguing this fall. On the one hand, we have the Mountain Lake Area nine-man football team, which racked up unheard-of scores during the 2013 regular season before succumbing...

Doug Wolter: Is any nickname really safe?
A new front has been opened up in the nickname wars. Forget the Washington Redskins controversy for a moment. Consider the University of Mississippi. Until now, most nickname-bashing has been directed from the outside in — such as the Redskins situation, where owner Daniel Snyder...

Doug Wolter: Sit Manziel, go slow with Bridgewater
I tend to have many discussions with other NFL fans about the subject of when to start rookie quarterbacks. A little more than half of my discussion partners say it’s best to sit them down a year to allow them time to study and meditate. But many others say they should get on the...

Doug Wolter: Minnesota West baseball team's fortunes looking up
The Minnesota West Bluejays baseball team wasn’t as bad as its 5-25 record last spring. But part of the reason the team struggled was that its pitchers couldn’t consistently close the deal. That may change next year. Head coach TD Hostikka reports that four pitchers from beyond...

Doug Wolter: Do you feel a draft?
Doug Wolter Daily Globe sports editor People who know anything about me know that I am an NFL draft junkie, a fanatic capable of sitting for three days straight in front of a television set during the annual NFL meat market and moving only for the occasional bathroom break. This...

Doug Wolter: MCC's Scotting a rare commodity
Rare it is that a high school track and field athlete is so doubly talented as a speedster and as a weight man. But Murray County Central senior Tyler Scotting is one such individual. “He’s a ball of muscle,” says MCC co-head coach Dominick Damm. The coach most responsible...

Doug Wolter: April is for baseball books
I am not yet convinced that the 2014 version of the Minnesota Twins won’t be vaguely like the 2013 version, so the time has come to delve into worlds that only books can create. I firmly believe that April was made not just to turn a sportsman’s fancy to baseball, but also...

Doug Wolter: Twins fans need convincing
In March, a young man’s thoughts turn to spring. Old men, too. So even though everybody else is fixated on the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, naturally I’m thinking about baseball. The Minnesota Twins open the 2014 regular season on March 31 at the Chicago White Sox, and...

Doug Wolter: It pays to consider intangibles
I have not been a very good prognosticator during the winter postseason. I seem to have momentarily forgotten that old sports adage – the one famously repeated by Herm Edwards in an NFL press conference: “That’s why … they play … the game.” I’d grown tired of waiting...

Doug Wolter: It's never too late until you run out of time
I don’t know if the Worthington Trojans boys basketball team is going to realize its potential before it’s too late, but one final opportunity dangles temptingly like a ripe fruit. The beauty of high school sports is that as long as there’s a game on the schedule, the opportunity...
