After losing to Warren Central in the State Finals last year the football team has big hopes for this season.

“(Our goal is) to be the best football team we can be,” Head Coach Mo Moriarity said.

The team’s first test will come on Friday when they play the 4A powerhouse Cathedral at home. “The first game is always a good test to start the season off,” Jordan Chapman, middle linebacker and senior, said. He also stated that a win there would be big since the Hounds have fallen to Cathedral the past few years.

Although Moriarity agrees that “you always want to get off to a fast start,” he is more focused on the playoffs. “Every game is important, but what is most important is being ready to play our best football when the playoffs get here,” he said.

Chapman said, “Our first priority is to win State, but we are going to take it one game at a time.”
