The J.J. Woodward era got off to a rough start in 2012. The new head coach of the Galt Warriors varsity football team brought a new level of enthusiasm to the program, but a thin roster — one further compounded by injuries — hampered progress and resulted a second straight 0-10 season. The season hit an early rock bottom with a forfeit to Argonaut due to lack of players.
With a full year under their belts in Woodward’s system, larger numbers and plenty of motivation, the Warriors continue their march back to respectability.
