(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's a new year, and there's a new head coach for the Kingsland football team.

Andrew Brouwer, the team's offensive and defensive line coach the past two years, takes over for John Fenske.

He inherits a team that failed to win a single game in 2013, but the Knights number are up, from 24 last year to 34 this year.

"Kids know what I'm like," Brouwer said. "They've been in my classroom, they know my style, so that helps quite a bit."

"This year is a lot more upbeat," Knights left tackle/middle linebacker Julius Wolf said. "Everybody is a lot more excited to be here, so it's just a better all-around experience."

The Knights open the season against Rushford-Peterson August 22nd.
