Northmor Wants To Keep Football Rolling
Riding Young QB Into New Season
July 22, 2020
The Northmor Golden Knights continue to prepare for the fast-approaching 2020 season with maintained success on the agenda.
Coming off an impressive 9-2 season (0-1 in the postseason), the Knights will have to replace a big senior class, however, it seems the up and coming athletes are prepared for the task at hand.
Head coach Scott Armrose stated “ we’ve had the ability to make a lot of excuses around here. The construction on our field, no power in our weight room, and all the distancing going on, but we’ve not used any of those excuses. We came in, in June, and we were not very in shape. Since then we have worked very hard and stayed focused.”
When asked about how big a load the defense will take this year, defensive coordinator David Morgan says, “ it’s going to be very important with all the guys we lost on offense. We're going to have to keep teams in control so our offense has a better chance to score.”
Northmor will likely have the defensive side of the ball to anchor them in 2020 as they adjust to sophomore quarterback Maxton Lower running the show under center.
Lower and company have a difficult test in their season opener against defending Northern 10 Conference champion Seneca East on August 27th, facing a Tigers squad that finished 10-2 last fall. We are all awaiting the news from OHSAA whether a fall sports season will begin on time, so until then, we can simply hope.
