Over the summer, Richard Wildenhaus moved his family almost 300 miles from Craig to Fort Morgan. Wildenhaus, Moffat County High School’s former athletic director, accepted the athletic director/assistant principal position in May at Fort Morgan High School. The school is bigger and his home is now on the other side of the state, but Wildenhaus said similarities outweigh differences between Craig and Fort Morgan. “(Fort Morgan) isn’t much bigger with about 15,000 people and the community is very supportive, just as Craig was,” Wildenhaus said Tuesday. “The high school has about 850 students and 16 sports, but we compete in 4A and the schools aren’t much different.”
