Liberty-Benton Eagles Team Preview

Head coach: Tim Nichols (11th year)

Last year’s record/playoff result: 6-4, did not make the playoffs
Starters Back: 7 on offense, 7 on defense

Key Players (with position(s)): Austin May, QB; Jon Sadler, RB; A.J. Dobbins, LB

Game(s) to circle on the calendar: Aug. 25 vs. Wynford; Oct. 27 vs. McComb

Team Schedule:

08/25 H Bucyrus Wynford
09/01 A Archbold
09/08 A Leipsic
09/15 A Van Buren
09/22 H Mt Blanchard Riverdale
09/29 H Arcadia

10/27 H McComb

Summary: McComb has won the Blanchard Valley Conference the past two seasons but Liberty-Benton has set its sights on taking this year’s title. Austin May impressed at QB last season. He should do the same again with some talented fellow skill position players. The question for the Eagles – will the offensive linemen develop? Coach Nichols says there are 70 kids out for the team - the most since he's been the coach. Two of their hardest games (Wynford and McComb) are at home.
