Summary: It’s Saunders first ever year as a head coach. He's NWOAL through and through. His mom is from Delta. His dad is from Wauseon. He grew up in Liberty center and graduated from Patrick Henry. He has coached at Woodmore, Fremont Ross, Lakota, and Gibsonburg prior to getting hired at Swanton. In year one, Saunders says, "Success to me, I won't count it in wins and losses, just improving week in and week and playing to your best ability every week." He wants his team to be tough, disciplined, have a great attitude, and work hard. He’ll institute a no-huddle, spread offense which is a change to the wing-T that the Bulldogs have used recently. Key seniors were injured last year so a lot of sophomores got playing time. That experience should pay off this season.
