At Wyoming High School, the process of growing leadership skills on the football team is getting a big assist from the basketball team.

First-year Wyoming head football coach Irv Sigler has made developing leadership skills a priority throughout the football program. With that in mind, Sigler has established a leadership council for the freshman, junior-varsity, and varsity teams.

A total of 18 players are part of the Wyoming Football Leadership Council. Those players meet each week in huddles with seven to eight players each.

The members of the leadership council meet once a week with a leadership coach. One of those coaches is Wyoming varsity boys basketball coach Thom VanderKlay.
