*Lancaster Fisher Catholic (3-7): The Irish, former state runners-up (1998), are looking for their first winning season since capping four straight playoff berths in 2006.

Head coach Tony Hurps (5-15 in two years) expects improvement.

“There’s some excitement that hasn’t been here of late with a very strong young group of kids and increased numbers,” Hurps said. “We should be deeper than we have been in past years, but we will still be playing several young players. We have some newcomers who should really shine in our offense.”

A couple of those are junior RB Ben Kerns (5-11, 185), sophomore TE Jacob Burley (6-3, 215) and big WR Derrick Stoughton (6-3).

Adding experience is senior OL Luke Schmelzer (6-0, 235), junior K Nick Klitzka (5-11, 175) and senior TE Josh Evans (6-2, 210).

Defensively, Evans (32 tackles, eight TFL), and Kerns (61.5 tackles) headline the charge.

The schedule, which includes Newark Catholic, Symmes Valley, Columbus Ready and Buckeye Valley, is difficult.
