Colony-Crest High School is gearing up for an exciting football season as they prepare to compete in the Three Rivers League. With their impressive track record in the 8-man II District 1, the team has already caught the attention of many. Heading into his fifth year as Head Coach, Nick McAnulty is poised to lead his team to success, and expectations are sky-high.
Colony-Crest demonstrated its strength last year with an impressive 7-3 record. Their dominant 5-0 league record positioned them as the team to beat, and their strong 4-1 district record reinforced their status. Although they narrowly lost a challenging sectional game against Osborne, Colony-Crest’s exceptional performance made a lasting impact.
As they say goodbye to 11 skilled seniors, the team will transform significantly this year. With just two returning offensive starters, change is inevitable. Coach McAnulty recognizes that this could present some initial obstacles as new players take on essential roles, but he is optimistic about their potential. “Despite the challenges, this group is excited for the opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities,” he affirms.
Among the familiar faces returning to lead the offense are Ryan Golden and Logan Kistner, who are expected to make impactful contributions. There are opportunities for emerging talents to shine on the defensive front, although specifics on top defensive returners are yet to be revealed.
With the spotlight on Colony-Crest Football’s new chapter, excitement is palpable. As the team navigates through changes and growing pains, their determination to rise to the occasion is unwavering. Watch out for more updates as they embark on a season filled with potential and possibilities.
