    Default Peters Looks forward to Going At it Hard with Tickers

    Wendell Petersplayed ten years in the FOFL. Nine ofthose years were with the Kongs of Keene as a defensive back, where the team failed to make theplayoffs even once, and failed to win one game in French. Peters quicklybecame accustomed to dysfunction.

    This all changedwhen Peters retired and entered the coaching profession. First as Assistant Cornerbacks Coach at New Hampshire for a year, then on to Fitchburg for twoseasons as Defensive Backs coach. Petersdid a year as the Receivers Coach in Europe as part of the FOFL internshipprogram, and then another as a Defensive Coordinator.

    Peters returned tothe states to take the same position with North Western. An unexpected run at the Big Ten championshipled by a pounding Wildcat defense thrust him into the discussion for vacanciesin both college and the pros. Peterscapitalized on this by inking an five year deal to become the head coach atMemphis.

    The turnaround on the Mississippi wasremarkable. Peter took a 2 and 10 team to 6and 6 and a spot in the "I canít believe it's not butter!" bowl,losing to Southeast Idaho State. Thefollowing season the team improved to 9-3, good for second in the American, anda win in the Hun Wu Hydrogen Full Cell Bowl against a respected Georgia Techteam.

    Long known forkeeping an eye on rising coaching talent, the French Ticklers turned their eyesa little to the east when they decided to part ways with Daniel Beaton. Beaton took the Ticklers to 65 wins, sixplayoff berths, and three trips to the conference championships. He earned the respect of the fans, but neverthe full embrace of ownership. TheTicklers started flirting with Peters before letting Beaton go, and consummated the deal in a Little Rock Denny's.

    Now Wendell Peters has pulled up to Ticklers Stadium expecting to win, and he has good reason think hewill. He has team with some parts inplace, enough money to make a splash, a stadium that will complete renovationsin the next few years, a proven staff, and a tremendous fan base. He is ready to go at it hard.

    This was a juicy hire, one sure to stimulate the fan base; they'll be gushing over Peters in no time.

    You got more colors than I ever seen, pink, red, yellow and in between.

    "Come at them. Come at them fast, come at them hard. Come at them from all directions all day long. Come at them until their knees buckle and they can't get up - then come at them some more." ~ Wendell Peters
