GO Wolves! The CSU-Pueblo football program is building their program with home grown talent, it's a matter of Pueblo Pride as five student-athletes from Pueblo signed to play football for the Pack, "It feels good to be honest with you. To stay home and just not worry about missing my mom or the people in the community that support me you know," says Pueblo South student Tyler White, "Not a lot of people can to stay home and play for their hometown team. To be able to stay here show out in front of the crowd. Knowing all the friends and family around coming out and supporting me it really means a lot to me," says Pueblo South student Jackson Dickerson, "This is our home and you want to build everything around your home and give kids and opportunity to go fulfill their dream. Some kids want to stay home. Some kids don't. I want to provide and opportunity for those kids who want to stay home," says CSU-Pueblo football coach John Wristen.

The Pack also went up I-25 to snag two players from the highly successful Pine Creek football program, "I think there's a culture up there about establishing what it means to be a winner," says Wristen, "You go out it's just like you step on the field and there is nothing better. It's the passion for hitting and putting in the sweat with your brothers," says Pine Creek student Spencer Peterson, "I think the thing that I really believe is that if local kids want to stay here they are going to be treated great," says Wristen.
