Noteworthy News: The Tornados have made the playoffs nine of the last 12 years and have reached the regional final in back-to-back seasons. Don’t be shocked to see them get that far again. Head coach Brian Colatruglio (21-5 in two years at TC) welcomes back eight starters on offense, including the team’s two leading rushers. Senior RB/LB Jack Jacoby (6-1, 210) returns as the workhorse after rushing for 1,591 yards and 25 TDs and making 96 tackles a year ago. Also back on offense are junior RB Ryan Lynch (5-11, 185/569 yards rushing, 10 TDs) and senior WR Jordan Dye (5-11, 190/32 rec., 490 yards receiving, four TDs). On the OL three starters return including Alec Lucius (5-11, 230, sr.) and Isiah Moore (6-3, 273, jr.). The strength of the defense will be up front where six starters are back. The concern is replacing the entire secondary.
Coach’s Quote: “We need to stay healthy on our o-line and develop our young secondary. If we do those things we expect to be in the race for a league championship and playoff berth. We have led or been tied two straight years going into the 4th quarter of the regional championship game to a team that won it all and the other ended up runner-up. We know that we are close and hope to get over the hump and continue our playoff success.”
