Coach’s comments: “This is a typical situation for a (6A) high school where you play a very strong schedule and have to play your seniors the majority of the minutes in every game. We don’t have the luxury of playing 50 kids in a game because of our schedule. Ninety percent of our players back have not been on the field on a Friday night when it counts.
“We lost mostly two-year starters off the line, who were robots out there. We have good leaders. Wing-T is not quarterback-driven. In our system the quarterback is told that he doesn’t have to be the one to win the game – just don’t lose the game. We lost three of the best running backs in Indiana in one class. Our backfield this year can go from tight wing-T to a spread without changing players. We have size but need more toughness. We’ll never play anybody better than our first four game, so let’s tee it up and get to Week 10 (playoffs).
