OFFENSE

Head coach Chris Paddlety’s quote for the upcoming season is simple. “We attack success. We don’t fear failure.” The Warriors will embody this motto as they work towards their goals this fall. Since last year they have seen improvement on the offensive line, featuring big, strong linemen who can pack a punch. Anchoring this line will be Joey White (5-10, 275, Sr.). Six other offensive starters return from last season, including Cash Novotny (6-2, 200, Sr.) who has settled into the role of quarterback. Novotny’s task will be to spread the ball around to big playmakers. This could mean a lot of opportunities for running backs Zavier Galey (5-9, 200, Jr.) and AJ Davis (5-11, 200, Sr.) to rack up points. Hector Camp (5-9, 160, Sr.) will make a promising target for Novotny at wide receiver as well. 

DEFENSE

This year the defense’s goals are stopping the run, swarming to the ball and making stops. Joey White will be a strong asset to the line going both ways. On the defensive side he has another powerful lineman with him in SirDarius Smith (6-5, 290, Sr.). The linebacker crew for opposing teams to watch out for will include AJ Davis and Zavier Galey, as well as Raheim Givens (5-10, 170, Jr.) and Blayke Brower (5-9, 165, Jr.). Paddlety’s coaching staff is Craig Pruitt, Keith Shaull, Adrian Davis, James Paddlety, Brian Borden and Drew Baker. Two new additions include Jacob Offolter for the offensive side of the ball and Kevin Botone moving up from the junior high to help with both sides of the line.
