    TELL CITY—Experience and stability, two things that have been rare on Tell City’s football team for years, give the Marksmen high hopes for their first winning record in seven years and only the second one in 12 years.
    Forty-five players, the team’s most in three years, reported for practice last week. The team also has 13 seniors after having only two or three play each of the last two years.
