Four former Union High School football players have joined Sr. Cole Hinders at Wartburg College.
In 2014 Wartburg matched its best ever ranking in the final Division III football polls of the season at No. 4. The Knights (12-1) were also ranked No. 4 at the end of the 2003 season. NCAA champion Wis.-Whitewater (14-0), eliminated Wartburg 37-33 in the quarterfinals.
The two-time defending Iowa Conference Champions are ranked No. 6 in the d3football.com Top 25 Preseason poll. This marks the highest ranking in the preseason poll for Wartburg since it was also ranked sixth in the poll prior to the 2004 season.
