OFFENSE

Casy Rowell takes over as the head coach of the Indians this season with eight starters back from a team that took some lumps last year. In a good news/bad news situation, Comanche does return twin running backs Trevor (5-9, 160, Sr.) and Trenton (5-10, 170, Sr.) Cusumano and a pair of huge, proven linemen in Mitchel Mohler (6-1, 280, Jr.) and Reece Middick (6-4, 310, Jr.). The bad news side of the equation is at quarterback, where the team will rely on youngster Bryson Evans (5-7, 150, So.) to learn Rowell’s Pro-I offensive philosophy. Evans will get great protection from the two mountains in the line and will also have a tested receiver in Noah Henderson (5-8, 145, Sr.). “On offense we want to establish a run game that will open up our quick passing game,” Rowell said. A nice plus for the Indians will be having three of their first four games at home.

DEFENSE

There are also eight starters back for the Indians on this side of the ball with a little bit of depth that will help some of the guys on offense. The Cusumano boys will team up again at linebacker as Rowell will switch to a 4-4 defense. Helping them out will be Gage Allie (5-8, 150, Jr.). Evans will be the main lockdown guy in the secondary while down in the three- point stance up front will be Wyatt Martin (5-10, 190, Jr.) at end and Ethan Bacon (5-11, 270, Sr.) at tackle. Comanche plays in one of the toughest 2A districts around, but with their strong senior class of experience they should be more competitive. “Our staff and players have worked hard this offseason and we are more motivated than we have ever been,” Rowell said.
