Steve Sciullo is a "football lifer."
When he was named the Lancers' new head coach in April, Sciullo, a former NFL lineman, couldn't wait to get to work.
"We want to raise the competitiveness of what we're doing here," said Sciullo, who spent four years in the pros. "Sometimes when you have some lean years, you sort of lose the competitive edge to really compete with these guys. I think we can."
Deer Lakes suffered through a winless campaign a season ago under T.J. Wiley, going 0-9 overall and 0-8 in the Allegheny Conference, but Sciullo thinks the returning starters will make a big difference this year.
