First year coach, Matt Littleton, takes over a program eager to prove itself following a disappointing 2022 season that saw only one victory. And already the upward swing is evident this summer with an influx of new athletes joining the program.
Coach Littleton will implement his new offense with Tevin Stokes returning at quarterback. The sophomore had some growing pains last year but looks to rely on Seth Olsen and the line to give him time to operate. He'll have a big target to throw to in Frankie Alvarado, who stands at 6'4.
One key Littleton points to this season will be the in-game adjustments they will make. The coaching staff believe they have the athletes and field savvy to outthink and outmaneuver their opponents.
The Wolverines bring a very young team into this season, but coach Littleton expects to surprise some people this year.
After a 3-0 start to begin the 2022 year, the Titans went 4-5 the rest of the way to finish with their worst record since the 2018 season.The Titans come into 2023 looking to return as a mainstay in the contender discussion.
Coach Thelen will need to replace graduated quarterback Brookhart who threw for over 1300 yards and 19 touchdowns last year. Look for Junior Nick Farley to take the reins of the offense. Farley will have the luxury of being protected by Logan White on the offensiveline who returns after a standout junior season.
The Titans have plenty of firepower coming back as well. Alex Martinez anchors a stable of young and promising running backs, as well as joins a talented wide reciever group that will look to Brian Doyle and Jaden Lawrence to post big numbers.
Defensively,the young Titans will look to build on last year's success with most of the statistical leaders returning.
Coach Cohen looks to once again reload, rather than rebuild, entering the 2023 season. Following a successful 2022 campaign, which included wins over both crosstown rivals, the Mustangshave talent returning all over the field.
Speed will be on display this year, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Cohen expects the team speed and experience to help the Mustangs improve on an impressive mark of holding opponents to under 20 points per game.
On offense the wide receiver group will produce some headline plays this year. Led by do-everything junior Max Mervin, the wide outs will be a headache for defensive coordinators all year long.
The offensive line will replace virtually everyone for a very young squad. The season could be made or broken by their play, as well as finding a new quarterback. If the Mustangs have to go to Mervin as their signal caller, they will look for ways to keep the ball in his hands.
