In just two years at Westfall High School, head coach Scott Keller has
put together an impressive 21-4 record with two Scioto Valley
Conference titles and two Division IV playoff berths. The trend should
continue. Riding an SVC record 26-game win streak, the Mustangs are the
team to beat in the conference – again.

Westfall returns seven starters on defense and five on offense.
“With 25 lettermen returning we expect to field an experienced, veteran team,” Keller said. “This senior class is among the hardest working and most disciplined that we’ve ever had here.”
Overall the program has been to the postseason six straight years. It’s won the SVC three straight times.
The Mustangs could also get a sizeable lift should the South-Western City School District levy fail on Aug. 4. Several Grove City and Central Crossing players have already hinted that they will attend Westfall if voters reject the levy. If that happens, Westfall would have to be elevated to one of the favorites in Region 15 thanks to an influx of players with D-I experience in the Ohio Capital Conference.
Defensively Westfall will have to replace defensive coordinator Brian Woll who has since moved on to Dayton Stebbins.
“Our defense was young and very inexperienced last year,” Keller said. “We really believe that with a year under their belt, and seven of them back on that unit, our defense should be our greatest strength.
“Offensively we need to find a quarterback that can effectively manage a team. We really feel like we have enough weapons surrounding that position, that what we’re looking for is a quarterback that can protect the football and move the chains.”
