We wrap up our series today about the Sheridan College men's basketball program with a sit down with new coach Matt Hammer. Here's Sheridan Media's Trevor Jackson.

The coaching staff for the Sheridan Bronc football program have been busy getting the team ready to take the field for the 2014 season. Head Coach Don Julian says that while they may have lost a good group of seniors, he's confident that this year's seniors will transition nicely into their roles and display the leadership that's needed to be a winning team.

We'll hear more from Coach Julian this week as the Broncs prepare to host Laramie a week from this Friday at Homer Scott Stadium. Kickoff is set for 6, with the First Federal Savings Bank pregame scheduled for 5:30. All Bronc football games this year will be broadcast live on AM-1410 KWYO.

The Big Horn Rams will scrimmage with Lander next Friday, August 29 in Casper at Kelly Walsh High School at 5 pm. The Rams will open up their season on the road at Lovell, Friday, September 5 at 7 pm.

The Tongue River Eagles football team has moved down a class, as they'll be competing in 1A this season. The Eagles will take part in a jamboree in Riverside Friday, August 29 at 3 o'clock. They will begin their season on the road against Rocky Mountain, Friday, September 5 at 7 pm.

The Sheridan High School Booster Club picnic will be tonight at 5:30, followed by a parent meeting for volleyball, girls swimming, golf, tennis, and cross country at 7 pm in the high school auditorium.

Broncos running back Montee Ball returned to practice Tuesday, participating in individual drills in his first on-field workout since undergoing an appendectomy earlier this month. Ball sat out the team drills when the Broncos squared off against the Houston Texans in the first of three practices. Weakside linebacker Danny Trevathan made an appearance at practice, hobbling out on crutches. Trevathan fractured his left leg in practice last week and is out four to six weeks.

Following the practice against Houston, Peyton Manning said that he was disgusted with their offense. When asked specifically what had set him off, Manning stared down the reporter and asked “were you watching?” What observers saw, actually, was a Broncos offense that produced its share of big plays in both 7-on-7 and team drills against a defense led by J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. But also some sloppy moments less than 48 hours after a chest-thumping 34-0 shutout of the San Francisco 49ers.

The Broncos will play their third pre-season game Saturday night at home against the Texans. We'll have all the action for you live on AM-1410 KWYO beginning at 5 o'clock with the pre-game show.
