COACHING STAFF: Tom Pavlansky, head coach (13th season, 77-51). Assistants: Steve Zielinski, Mark Swinning, Ron DeJulio, Jim Bell, Tom Priesse, Jack Vagas, Sean Ruane, Dave Kovacs, Vinnie Elias.
PLAYOFF HISTORY: 6 years, 5-6. Last appearance, 2010.
OUTLOOK: Anthony Franco returns at QB to bolster the offense. Trevor West and Ryan Scott are the leading candidates to replace Clint Hess at RB. The graduation of WR/DB Toma Leveto leaves a hole. DL is a strength, led by Jacob Payton and Zach Grinnell, but there’s inexperience behind them.
Aug. 12: At Jefferson, 10.m.
Aug. 19: At Canfield, 7 p.m.
QUOTE from the COACH
“We face a schedule that is going to require us to get better each day. Avoiding injuries is critical. Our senior class last year left some big shoes to fill, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Our strengths are in our skilled positions.”
