Goddard Eisenhower opens the season September 5th against the Andover Trojans. After a 2-7 season, the Tigers look for improvement with the most leadership on the offensive line and defensive side of the ball.
Head coach Marc Marinelli is in his second season at the helm of the Eisenhower program, and is focused on a district which features Goddard, Ark City and Liberal, a group that combined for a 10-18 record last season.
With that district in mind, Marinelli gears the Tigers toward the chance to play their best football down the final stretch.
"You always worry about how the season is going to start, and keeping them going. We open with Andover. It's going to be a tough Week 1. And our job as coaches is to get them ready for Week 7,8, and 9. And I think the challenge is how do they respond to adversity in Week 1 if things aren't going right against Andover. So we're going to put them in some situations but it's totally different with live bullets."
Eisenhower kicks off with Andover September 5th at 7:00 pm.
