COACHING STAFF: Andy Hake, head coach (3rd season, 18-4). Assistants: Jason Cochran, Ed Anthony, Brett Powell, Andrew Whitmer, John Deal Sr., Jeff Martig, Russ Hake.
PLAYOFF HISTORY: 5 years, 2-5. Last appearance, 2010.
OUTLOOK: Blue Devils expect to reload, rather than rebuild, despite the loss of six standout seniors. QB Jeff Clegg returns, though, to trigger the offense, which will also feature RB Donnie Bolton. He’ll run behind a veteran offensive line of Tyler Powell, Aaron Halls, Micah Marra, Brian Deal and Adam Badget. Defensively there’s less experience, but Bolton, Tommy Marlowe and Thomas Benyo anchor the unit nicely as LBs.
Aug. 9: At Columbiana, 10 a.m.
Aug. 19: At Pymatuning Valley, 7 p.m.
QUOTE from the COACH
“We have high expectations and high demands, and the kids are working to reach their goals. We have a veteran crew coming back, so we have high expectations.”
