Coach’s View

Our overall schedule is a gauntlet, and in Region 6-AAA, there are a lot of good coaches and tough teams to play week in and week out. We have to come to play each and every week of the season against good competition. With our staff and players having now been together for a full year, we hope to improve our last year’s results.
