(ABC 6 NEWS) -- These aren't your old brother's Austin Packers.

The Packer football team finished the 2013 regular season with a .500 record (4-4), and won a playoff game before losing to eventual state champ Owatonna.

Suffice to say, the days of one win per season are long gone, or at least that's what Brett Vesel hopes.

The Austin head coach is entering his third year at the helm, and likes what he has entering 2014.

"Defensively, we've looked really good," Vesel said. "I'm confident our offensive line is going to come around. I think it's just a matter of how a couple key positions end up going."

The Packers get Mayo in week one, the same team they beat in overtime last year.
