Horde opens season on road against Stillwater

Granville’s football team embarks on what they hope is a long and successful season tomorrow night as it travels to Stillwater.

The Horde will take on Stillwater tomorrow in what is the season opener for both teams.

The game is a rematch of last year’s thriller, which Granville won 16-14.

The Horde, which got off to a slow start last year, but rallied to win three of its final games, is hoping to qualify for Sectional play.

“We’ve gotta be able to go 1 and 0 each week, in order to qualify for sectional play, and ultimately we want to play in November,” Torres said.

Granville lost several key players from last year’s squad, including Josh Scribner, Jared Beattie, Luke Hahn and Elijah Fournier, but returns several talented players.

Evan Hoagland who came on strong during the second half of last season will be a big part of the team’s offensive attack. Ronnie Taylor, Billy Pratt and John Travis are all returning starters and team leaders. There are a number of newcomers who will be asked to contribute this year.

“We have a really good nucleus of juniors and seniors, and we also have a really good nucleus of sophomores who saw varsity play,” Torres said.

He said the group is extremely fast and athletic.

Stillwater and Granville both participated in last week’s preseason scrimmage so the teams should have some familiarity with each other going into this week’s contest.

Kickoff for tomorrow’s game is at 7 p.m.
