Football

Last year's season was a success, but an early district knockout has left this year's team motivated to do more. After finishing the regular season 8-1 the Indians were beat in the second round of districts. This year's team returns six players on the offensive side of the ball and five on the defensive. Once again, this team will be deep at multiple different skill positions, and will have the ability to attack opponents in a variety of ways. The defense is built on aggressive play that saw the Indians break the season record for forced turnovers last year. This season the defense hopes to build on that success and rely on their speed an athleticism to create problems for the opponent's offense. This season is led by captains Ian Riley, returning all-state linebacker Austin Magnuson, Nick Riley and Kevin Weatherspoon. In order for this year to replicate the success of last they will have to play as a team and gel as one unit. This team is proud to represent our community both on and off the field.
