The Viking football team steps into the season with 10 freshmen out of a 23-player squad with only two seniors.

Coach Scott Harris anticipates an exciting season as his young but athletic team matures.

“We bring in two dual threat quarterbacks in freshmen Miles Harlow and Demitri Pence,” said  Harris, reviewing the offense. “Freshman running backs this season are led by the quick-footed Pasha Bullock and backed up by two speedsters: Charlie Holmes and Kevin Campos.” Harris added that the team has a host of solid receivers with great hands and speed, including Gage Harlow and freshmen Cameron Aragon, Aidan Kruse and Jordan Randolph, and a solid group of freshmen looking to make their impact including Michael Chesher, Gunnar Sandwith and Rowan Lister.

At the offensive and defensive line, their numbers are thin but big in athleticism with Jay Zier, Joey Susol, Joe Kostechko, Keenan O’Brien, Kyle Masters, Mackey Cardinell and freshman Elijah Everett taking most of the duty, said Harris. “

These guys are ready to be the workhorses of the team.,” he said. “Our strength this year will be in the long snapper and place kicker. Long snapper junior Zier and senior kicker Jack Russillo were both highly ranked nationally after camps this summer and should be fun to watch.”

Harris promises the  2014 Vikings will work hard and be fun to watch as they mature and begin to show flashes of their potential in upcoming years.
