Clintonville Truckers Featured in U.S. Cellular "A Season of Tradition" Documentary
Clintonville, Wis. (Sept. 14, 2015) – Coach Scott Werfel had a vision for Clintonville High School when he took the head football coaching job in 2014 — to restore the program to its former glory. The Clintonville Truckers have a long and rich high school football tradition, and this past week the history of that tradition was immortalized in a documentary video as part of U.S. Cellular's "A Season of Tradition" program.
"As someone who has been around football my entire life, I know how the local high school team can bring a community together to rally around a common goal," said Coach Werfel. "From day one I was committed to making this team successful as it once had been, and I am excited to see how this documentary inspires not only the players, but the community, to learn about the past and get involved with the program in the future."
After learning of the Clintonville tradition, U.S. Cellular chose the school for its first "A Season of Tradition" documentary video. As a company that is committed to bringing communities together, it created the program to showcase and celebrate the schools and fans who come together to support the players in their local communities. Additional high school football programs in Salem, Va., and Midwest City, Okla., are also being featured in documentaries as part of the program.
"The fun and inspiring story of Clintonville Trucker football began many years ago, and as soon as we heard about the history, recent resurgence and community support of the program, we knew we wanted to feature it in our program," said Eric Larson, area sales manager for U.S. Cellular in northern Wisconsin. "At U.S. Cellular, we strive to be a part of the local communities where we live, work and play, and we look forward to watching the Truckers play this season."
In addition to the documentary, U.S. Cellular is providing $5,000 worth of football equipment to the program, including a training sled, uniforms and helmets. For the documentary, U.S. Cellular's crew traveled throughout the city and interviewed alumni of Clintonville High School, former football players, boosters and local business owners.
