New Davies Football Coach Werremeyer Wants to Continue Strong Senior Leadership With in Program
Werremeyer takes over for Jason Thielges who retired in December
FARGO, N.D. — In December, after five seasons as Davies head football coach, Jason Thielges decided to retire. Four months later, the eagles found their next head coach and didn’t have to go too far to find him. Wayne Werremeyer, whose been an assistant at Davies under Thielges is taking over.
Werremeyer has plenty of coaching experience at the high school level locally. Before being on the staff at Davies, was an assistant with Shanley, Fargo South and Moorhead. Getting to know the players in the Eagles program in his time there, Werremeyer sees a lot of benefits taking on the new job title.
One of those is being able to make the team his own. How does he plan on making that happen? Establishing strong senior leadership.
“Its not my team, you know what I tell the seniors every year is this is your team,” Werremeyer said. “I’m going to be coaching the next year the next year and the next year but they aren’t going to be there. I think what we need to look at every year is how the seniors can take ownership year after year after year because if we can build that tradition of strong senior leadership then I think we take on a little bit of a different path to where the team really becomes our own.”
The Eagles are coming off back-to-back winning seasons.
