Schedule: Said Keller, “Our season is usually dictated by our first three games: Teays Valley, Logan Elm and Circleville. Larger schools, rivalry games and a lot of computer points are on the line.”
Coach’s Quotes: “This season we welcome back a wealth of experience on both sides of the ball. We return nine starters on offense and nine on defense. We have been very young the last couple of years, so we’re expecting those youthful mistakes (turnovers and penalties) to be eliminated.”
“This isn’t the most talented team we’ve ever had, but they are very close. As a coach, the thing I like most about this group is their work ethic and their competitive nature. They work hard every single day in practice and they make every single drill a competition. Those two qualities allow our coaching staff to focus our energies on the fundamentals and schemes rather than worrying about whether or not we have to teach them how to compete or how to work.”
