Lewis Center Olentangy (7-4)

* Players To Watch –
DT Brad Young (6-0, 300, Sr.), SS Aaron Gutentag (6-0, 165, Sr.), MLB David

Outlook – The
Braves qualified the 2008 playoffs as the No. 7 seed in Region 6 and gave
eventual state champion Sylvania Southview a good game on the road before
falling 28-14.

This year, Olentangy tries its hand at Region 7.

“I don’t know if it’s a good move for us – 12 teams from
this region made the playoffs last year, including Brookhaven and the teams
that are moving up from D-III,” head coach Ed Terwilliger said. “But nothing
has changed for us. We still have the same goals and we want to get in the
playoffs and see what happens from there. But it’s going to be really tough to
get in. Louisville
is always good. Logan
is a great team with their senior quarterback back. Scioto
has got something like 38 seniors this year.

“We also want to compete for a league championship, but our
division is loaded with good D-I teams and good D-II teams: Marysville,
Westerville South, Westerville North, Olentangy Liberty, Westerville Central,
Jerome, Scioto. So, we’re about week-to-week.”

Terwilliger says the vacant starting quarterback job will be
decided in preseason camp.

“Yeah, we don’t know about quarterback yet,” he said. “Our
quarterback last year was a senior and graduated. We probably have four guys
competing for the spot and it’s a toss-up right now.

“Traditionally, we have a lot of seniors graduate and
juniors step in. We’ll have some younger kids playing this year since they
split our district up again with adding Olentangy Orange.”
