Head Coach: Deonta Wade (2-6, 2nd season)

Assistant coaches: Doug Billingsly, Mark Andrews, Jeremy Neuenschwander, Dave Harlin, Mario Grant, Jaylen Logan and Mike O’Connor

COACH WADE SAYS:

“I think our speed and physicality will be our strength this season. We want to pound teams, and for the first time in a while, I believe Coffeyville will be able to do just that. Changing the mentality was a challenge last season. It was evident that we lacked confidence. We must overcome not being used to winning, and we must change the expectations around here.”

2020 REVIEW

Last season was the first season for Field Kindley under head coach Deonta Wade. They picked up two wins on the season, beating Augusta 34-21 in their season opener and topping SEK rival Chanute 27-24 in week 6. “The best thing I saw from our program last year was the level of competition,” coach Wade says, “We were competitive in the majority of our games, and gave ourselves the opportunity to have a chance to win in the end. For me, this is something that I needed to happen, our kids to be battle-tested. Now the goal becomes to expect to compete every day in every provided opportunity. We want to change the expectation in Coffeyville. Right now, the expectation is hoping to win, and we need that to become expecting to win. This next season will be huge to see if we can take that next step.” Field Kindley had some talented individuals on last year’s squad. Darell Jones (K-State), Tariq Logan (Hutchinson CC) and Aaron Rutherford (Coffeyville CC) all graduated and moved on to play at the next level.

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

Field Kindley lost some electric players. “There is no Darell Jones or Tariq Logan,” says head coach Deonta Wade, “People must step up soon.” Coffeyville will be pretty young, but that’s not all bad sometimes for a coach looking to build from the foundation up, like Wade is trying to do. While they’re young, they will have a few seniors on the team who will need to be on-field leaders in 2021. “You are only good when the team controls themselves,” Wade says of having players step up and be leaders, “This starts with our seniors. They must control egos quickly and play together.” Field Kindley has to start with doing the little things right. There’s some talent there. It’s also still very early in coach Wade’s tenure, but he’s got the right energy and attitude to get the thing rolling. “We just want to get better every snap,” Wade says, “We will win if we do the little things right. Football is football. The game comes down to who blocks and tackles the best. We must grow quickly to have a chance this fall.” By the way – don’t blink or you may miss them if you’re wanting to catch a game in Coffeyville. The team lists just three home games on their schedule for 2021, with four straight road games from September 10th-October 1st.
