PONETO, Ind. (WFFT) - The Southern Wells football team begins a new era under Mike Roeder and is up next in our FOX 55 Countdown to Kickoff.

Roeder takes over the Raiders in 2019 after a two year "retirement" after a 22 year stint with Northeastern.

He will have his challenges ahead as he takes over at Southern Wells. The Raiders have gone 1-9 each of the past three seasons, and Roeder will be the program's third head coach in three seasons.

But, despite a low turnout of players, Roeder says the team doesn't lack talent, and he wants them to succeed.

Southern Wells will open their season August 23 at Fremont.
