Summary: Last season the team’s rallying cry was: Why not Waite? Now, after a 5-5 season area teams should know who Waite is. The key will be following up on last year’s initial success. Remember the Indians started 4-1 but then faced stiffer competition and went 1-4 in the final five games. Coach Lee said they failed at facing adversity during that second half of the season. Javon Pratt is a playmaker. When it touches the ball on offense it could be a TD. On defense he can make an interception and turn it into a pick 6 touchdown. Lee wants Pratt to lead vocally this year. Lee is also very impressed with his freshmen and sophomore classes. The team spirit is the team strength. The last five seasons Waite’s record has been: 5-5, 3-7, 4-6, 5-5, 5-5.
