Schedule: Euclid expects to compete for and win the Lake Erie League as well as earn a playoff spot. As always, its non-conference schedule is tough with Mentor, Cleveland Central Catholic and Canton Glen Oak. The LEL will be very competitive.

Coaches Quote: “We return a lot of players from last year and look to earn our 15th playoff appearance and 15th League Championship. We have some above average size to go along with a nice group of veteran skilled kids.”
