2011 Football Preview: Mentor Lake Catholic -
06-28-2011, 01:02 PM
Mentor Lake Catholic (12-2, D-II State Semifinalist)
* Players to Watch – ATH/LB Kyle Schinke (6-1, 190, sr.), RB/LB Lou Vettel (5-11, 175, sr.), LB Steve Freiberg (5-9, 180, sr.)
* Outlook – The Cougars have won back-to-back regional titles under head coach Mike Bell (76-36 in nine years) but stretching that streak to three will be tough. MLC must replace 21 of 22 starters. Only one player (Vettel) who ran for over 100 yards on the season returns. Defensively, Schinke (47 tackles, nine TFL) and Freiberg (35 tackles, five TFL) are back. Despite the graduation losses, Bell says, “I really believe this has been our best overall off season. The players are working extremely hard, they have shown tremendous leadership, and have very high expectations for the 2011 season.” New teams on the MLC schedule include: Strongsville, Ravenna and Avon.
