With what he termed a solid work ethic coming from his 33-player roster heading into the first week of practice, Chartiers-Houston coach Terry Fetsko had an optimistic view heading into the 2015 season. The Buccaneers were 5-5 last season, 4-3 in the Black Hills Conference), and lost in the first round of the playoffs.
"I love our work attitude and the way they've been working over the summer," Fetsko said. "I think our skill people are going to be strong, but we'll have to replace a few people on the line."
