Schedule: Said DiFranco: “We open the season with three very tough teams. Elyria has Division I athletes on both sides of the ball, Midview has one of the best QB prospects around and Clearview has a young talented team. The SWC will prove to be as formidable as ever. Our schedule is the same is it was last year. All of our games our big. When you only have a 10 game season and you work all year for it, you need to make every one count.”

Coach’s Quote: “Our Senior class has really stepped up this off-season. Our guys have been accountable and have been great leaders. They have a bitter taste in their mouth from last season and they are determined to help lead this program back to a level that enables us to compete for the southwest conference championship.”
