What are your expectations for your team this year? 
Expectations for this year never change. Our vision is to build men of integrity. Continuing to be intentional about character development in and outside of the football field. On the field we are in continual pursuit of a district 10 championship, this team is a veteran team that has been through the highs and lows of a football season. They are hungry and motivated to bring a championship back to Grove City.

When your team is on offense, what are the keys to success? 
Our success begins with our offensive line. We have a veteran line returning this season with many 2 and 3 year starters. It will be key to develop depth up front as the season progresses. With key skill players returning (Hovis, Nemec, Rodgers, Pereira, Lutz, Reznor, McCreadie, Hake), we want to control the tempo of the game, run the ball efficiently and get the ball to our playmakers.

When your team is on defense, what are the keys to success? 
First and foremost…stop the run! That begins up front with a veteran defensive line and allows linebackers to get to the ball and make plays! Play fast, play physical and create turnovers!!
