(ABC 6 News) - The RCTC football team practiced for the first time Tuesday on their new turf, 18 days before their season opener against Mesabi Range Community and Technical College.
Last year the Yellowjackets went just 1-6 in Head Coach Derrick Hintz's return to the program. Hintz says there was a problem with the team's mindset, and that over the next few weeks he is focused on getting his team's head in the right place in order to create a winning atmosphere.
"We've got I believe 24 guys back on campus this fall and they're already working on the culture for the young guys that have come in. It's a totally different feel this year than last year. They're back, they believe in what we're doing, they know we can win a championship together if we just change the culture," Hintz said.
