Carey Blue Devils

The Blue Devils senior class is 28-7 the last three years with three
playoff berths and two regional semifinal appearances. How do they close
out their careers? That’s the question.

Said head coach Todd Worst: “The last couple of years have been good to the Carey faithful, so the
expectations will still be high.”


Carey
Division VI
Region 22

2009 record: 10-2

* Players to Watch – OG/LB Jordan Stock  (5-11, 190, Sr.); FB/LB Brandon Orians (5-10, Sr.); OT Trent Blair (6-0, 210, Sr.); SS Steven Vaughn  (6-1, 165, Sr.); FS Dustin Massie (6-1, 160, Sr.); DT Zach Goble (5-10, 230, Sr.); LB Bryce Orians (6-0, 150, Jr.)

* Outlook – The Blue Devils senior class is 28-7 the last three years with three playoff berths and two regional semifinal appearances. How do they close out their careers? That’s the question.

“The last couple of years have been good to the Carey faithful, so the expectations will still be high,” head coach Todd Worst (33-12 in four years) said.

Blair, Stock and Brandon Orians were second team Midland Athletic League last season.

There are holes but also there’s also expectation and excitement.

“We graduated a talented group seniors from the 2009 team, so most of our starters will be new to the Friday night lights, but there is a small core of seniors that can lead the underclassman in the right direction if they choose to follow,” Worst said. “Our players dedication and level of motivation will be apparent early in the season with the challenge of two bigger schools and St. Joe all in the first four games.”

* Schedule –
The Blue Devils play D-IV Upper Sandusky and D-III Willard before entering into Midland Athletic League play. Their first MAL game is on the road at one of the preseason favorites Fremont St. Joe’s. Depending how Carey survives the first four games on its schedule will tell the tale of this season. The closing trio of Hopewell-Loudon, Seneca East and Mohawk is tough.
