West Muskingum Football Preview

by Chase Evans on August 21, 2013 at 11:48 am

When you have just two wins in the last three seasons, there is a lot to prove. The West Muskingum football team will try to prove themselves this upcoming season. After going winless a year ago, head coach Jeremy Ketcham returns eight upperclassmen and is determined to change the culture of Tornado football.

The team has been hard at work this week in preparation for their final preseason scrimmage Friday against Bishop Rosecrans. That game is set to be played at 7:30 pm at West Muskingum High School.

As a whole, the Tornadoes are trying to change the recent stigma that has haunted the program. Numbers are always against West Muskingum, but they have 31 players out this season and more experienced players overall. Coach Ketcham likes the size of his linemen on both sides of the ball and says the players are picking up the schemes quickly.

Nothing will come easy, as each game they will have to earn their respect back.
