Kempf, Barons Working To Change Direction Of Program

Pete Kempf DeKalb Barons

AUBURN, Ind. (WANE) – With three winless seasons in the last four years the DeKalb football program is looking to reverse its fortunes in 2014 – and Barons fans hope new head coach Pete Kempf is the right man to do it.
Kempf, a 2002 DeKalb grad, takes over the program after spending the last three years as an assistant at East Noble. He’s also been an assistant coach at Huntington North.
The Barons return with experience at quarterback in junior Harrison Price who started six games last season and threw for over 600 yards. 6-foot-4 Wil Chrisman leads the receiving corp after hauling in 22 passes for 249 yards last fall. The offense is shifting to a no-huddle attack in 2014 and experience will be key.
Defensively, three-year starter Chad Ramus leads the secondary of a unit looking to improve after yielding 318 yards rushing per game last season.
The Barons scrimmage Leo on Friday and open the regular season August 22 at Angola. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
