County schools ready to kick off season

(Continued)

“His role will be expanded, but that also means that our other running backs will touch the ball a bit more with teams keying on Autry,” Sumner said. “This makes us less predictable since we run the option.”

After accounting for 596 yards and four TDs last year, Ben Jones is expected to start at quarterback, but could share time with freshman Christian Schabel.

Back on the offensive line are James Banich and Ryan Miller. Nick Hunt, Braxton Hudson, Luke Broderick and Christian Spurlock will also contribute.

Tanner Holland, Nick Hall, Jonathan Curtis, Nick Gilliam, Dylan Boyd, Austin Scammahorn, and Kody Caudle will lead the defense.

Sumner expects Logan Knotts, Jonathan Muse, Trevor Schubert, Connor McGovern and Tanner Hubbard to be among the Warriors’ top first-time varsity players.

Along with moving to 4A, Danville received no favor in its sectional realignment, as the Warriors have Chatard and Roncalli in their bracket, teams with a combined 39 sectional titles.

“We believed our sectional would work out the way it did,” Sumner said. “One way or another, we would potentially have to play the best in the state. We believe we can compete with anyone if we execute our assignments and play to our potential. As long as we maximize our potential, then I am happy with any result that may occur in a game.”

Tri-West

An 8-3 record and co-Sagamore Conference championship last year has the Bruins ready to take another step forward.

“I think last season had an impact on this group through the offseason and I think it left us feeling good about Tri-West football in general,” eighth-year Tri-West coach Chris Coll said. “But now that we are about to kick off the 2013 season, it will be up to this team and it’s leaders to establish itself and create momentum.”
