The Musketeer football team will open its season on the road against the Panthers of Pinckneyville Friday night. Head Coach David Lucht and staff hope to get off to a good start.
“At the close of last years season we felt we should have won 5 games instead of our 3-6 finish, but that was last year. This season we feel that we can be very competitive and make some noise in the conference and earn a play-off birth, but we will have to get off to a very good start.
We return 4 out of 5 offensive lineman with Matt Wiegard, Brad Mertz, Pierce Heizer and Derek Wieser. Add Bryce Amann to the mix and we have a very experienced and solid foundation to build on. Not to mention Ryan Rieke , Hunter Sauer, Ian Stafford and Mason Ferrell are knocking on the door.
