Hononegah hopes to stay in title chase
By Matt Nestor
The last two seasons, Hononegah has only lost to Harlem and Boylan. They have also done something those teams haven’t, and won a playoff game each year.
This year, the Indians return an experienced group. Combined with the fact that Harlem and Boylan have both lost a lot of talent, and the Indians have every right to be confident in their ability to win a conference title this year.
“We continue to have a goal of competing for a conference championship,” Head Coach Tim Sughroue said.
Spearheading the push will be returning quarterback Chase Robinson. The senior was a second-team all-conference player last year, and will be among the top players in the conference this season.
Also leading this veteran, explosive offense will be running back Bryan Rothmaler, who was among the best running backs in the conference last year as well.
While the Indians will return a potent offense, defense will be a struggle early. Hononegah will have to replace just about every starter on defense, and could struggle early.
“The commitment over the summer was more inconsistent than it has been compared to recent years,” Sughroue said. “Finding consistency in our execution will be critical to our success during the season.”
