EXTRA POINTS Keys to a successful year POSITION OF STRENGTH
Krum has several all-district performers returning on what could be a strong offense. Wide receiver Brennan Ellis, tight end Dylan Coffin and key offensive lineman Hunter Howard have been playing together since a young age and are now seniors. Krum will look to that core to help make up for Howard the loss of quarterback Caz Wojciak, who is no longer on the team. “What I’m relying on is that we’re going to execute very well on offense,” Krum coach Gary Robinson said. “Our offensive line will take care of business. We’re going to execute because they’ve been under me for so long they know exactly what they need to do.”
POINT OF CONCERN
Having lost some seniors to graduation last year — the first time in the program’s short history — the Bobcats will have some spots filled by newcomers to varsity.
“Now we’re like other programs where we have to fill some spots,” Robinson said. Incoming varsity players include juniors Colton Richards and Ely Sanchez on the offensive line and sophomore Jacob Enis at cornerback.
KEY NEWCOMER As a sophomore last year, Dane White became a presence in the secondary and earned all-district honors. While he’s not a newcomer to the program, he’s headed to a new position — starting running back.
GAME OF THE YEAR One need only look a few miles north of Krum to find the Bobcats’ fiercest rival and key game on the schedule: Sanger. Most of the players know one another and have competed against each other, making the game the one that is circled in red. “It used to be Ponder in the basketball days,” said Robinson, “but as the school’s grown, now in my mind and I think in the kids’ mind, it’s Sanger. That’s a big game.” This year the two teams will collide in Sanger on Oct. 25.
