Summary: Coach Kregel likes his wide receivers and his running backs. “We haven’t had [those] in recent years,” he said. His offensive line is not big but it’s a solid group that works together. The Jackets do have a really tough non-league slate early on in the season. Dublin Coffman, St. John’s and Whitmer all went to the playoffs last year. In recent years Perrysburg has had a young team that “got their lumps” but they’re more experienced and have a shot to compete in the NLL. Sims is bigger and stronger so Kregel said, “we’re not afraid to run him now.” From 2013 to 2015 this program went 33-5. Can they get back to that level? Maybe the first step toward progress can be taken in 2018.
