UW-Oshkosh opens first spring practices of Jennings era
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - UW-Oshkosh has become one of the top division three football programs in the country over the past decade. A big change at the helm this year with Peter Jennings taking over as the head coach.
Since 2012 the Titans have ten straight winning seasons, and four WIAC titles. Building on that success is the task of new head coach Peter Jennings, and that starts right now with spring practice.
“Our guys know what hard work is, they’re not afraid of rolling up their sleeves, and doing the dirty work if you will. I’m excited about that. That foundation is phenomenal,” said Peter Jennings.
“There will be some changes, but the biggest thing is us getting on the same page. Kind of understanding all that he wants to see happen,” said quarterback Kobe Berghammer.
“Some of them small. Some of them maybe a little bit larger, but what made this job, this position, so enticing was that I knew I was coming to a program that had a really really solid base,” said Jennings.
The Titans will have 15 practices this spring at their disposal. Valuable time with more than 100 days before the start of preseason camp in August.
“I was so impressed what they were able to do, what our coaches were able to do, but that’s our benchmark. That’s our lowest point, because every day we’re going to get a little bit better,” said Jennings.
Following that template will be key to success in the fall, with the groundwork laid in the spring.
“We have high standards here. That culture is something that we would like to have stay from Coach C to Coach Jennings. Taking things day by day instead of looking so far ahead and trying to plan out the future. It’s just trust that, trust every day,” said Tony Steger.
