Noteworthy New: The Patriots are shooting for their 11th straight playoff appearance and return 6 starters on offense and 7 on defense. PH has been in the regional finals six of the last eight years.
Schedule: The Northwest Ohio Athletic League will be tough again with the likes of Liberty Center, Bryan and Archbold challenging PH for the title. The season opener at Pemberville Eastwood is no joke.
Coaches Quote: “We have good experience back on the offensive and defensive fronts. Our backfield and LB corps should be strong. We are concerned about our inexperienced receiving corps and our lack of numbers. Our overall numbers will be around 34 in the top three grades.”
