*Coldwater (15-0, D-IV State Champions): The Cavaliers have been in four straight state finals and own the state’s longest current playoff streak (16 seasons). Both runs are in jeopardy. Coldwater graduated a talented senior class that left plenty of holes, but talent does remain.

Junior Brody Hoying (5-11, 180) takes over at QB after catching 23 passes for 318 yards and a TD last year. Hoying is a Division I caliber prospect who also had 59 tackles, six INTs and two forced fumbles as a DB. Senior WR/LB Mitch Schoenherr (6-2, 195) returns after catching 25 passes for 428 yards and six TDs and registering 66 tackles, four sacks, three fumble recoveries and two INTs. Senior DE/OL Andrew Schwieterman (6-1, 215) is also back after making 50 tackles and four sacks.  

“We’re trying to rebuild after losing 23 seniors,” Coldwater head coach Chip Otten said. “We’ve got a good group of core skill players returning, but the front 7 on both sides is very inexperienced and untested.”

The Cavaliers schedule opens with six straight former state champions (Kenton, Hartley, Versailles, Delphos St. John’s, minster and St. Henry). A road game at Marion Local looms in Week 8.

Of note, defensive coordinator Tim Hoyng is retiring after 36 years at Coldwater and 39 years overall.

Said Otten: “It’s going to be a huge challenge for us to compete for the MAC title and continue our playoff streak.”
