Season opener is Thursday

Kickoff return drills today.
Linemen drills.
The Jaguars football team begins their season tomorrow night at Norwood-Young America. They've been working hard during the preseason and are as ready as they'll ever be for Friday Night Lights Part I. Turnout is a solid 45 in grades 9-12. Of that group, 19 are juniors and seniors who will be heavily relied on this year.

Tri-captains for the 2014 Jaguars are seniors Tommy Cebulla, Dalon Bitzan and Jordan Wosmek. Offensive linemen include Taylor Knight, Zach Walz, Shawn Felling, Adrian Belden and Ben Thompson. The entire backfield is basically brand new to the varsity level with the exception of Cebulla. Many of the first-year starters got varsity time last year in the blowout wins.

I've talked with quite a few of the varsity players and their coaches. They are very excited to get the season going. I'm very optimistic about how the season will go. They have the right attitude and will go out with guns blazing against the Raiders. Good luck Jaguars!
