Head Coach: Nate Butte


The football head coach vacancy became available in mid-July when former coach Tony Moller reluctantly had to resign to concentrate on running his business after finding himself unable to hire the necessary help. The job was again posted, and Elk Rapids turned to Nate Butte, the JV head coach last year, and was slated for the same position this season. Butte has been a coach in the Elk football program at various levels for several years, the current group of seniors were coached by him as sixth graders. The players are familiar with Butte, helping to bring consistency and an easy transition to the varsity program.

The Elks will begin the year on Friday, August 27th at home against Kalkaska.
