Veteran assistant Nick Cochran takes over as head coach for Bud McSuley. With 10 lettermen returning, the Indians are coming off an unbeaten regular season and an 11-1 record. Their playoff loss was to Woodridge in the Division IV Region 13 semifinals. Cochran’s team will run a spread offense play a 40 defensive scheme. Senior wide receiver Landon Smith has committed to play for Youngstown State. “With a lot of new faces on the field, our goal is for the young players to mature and get better each week,” Cochran said. The Indians play in the All-American Conference Blue Tier.
"When you go 10 - 0 like last year, everyone is out to get you. We're looking to continue what we started last year. It will be a little more difficult schedule as we've picked up Hubbard and Akron Manchester."
