If Freeport wants to avoid another less-than-stellar campaign, coach John Gaillot suggests his team focus more on starting strong instead of just finishing that way.
"It's just how we start," Gaillot said. "If we start with confidence in every game, our record will be different. You can't give someone 14 or 21 points and come back.
"We did that in every game [last year], but we were fortunate enough to come back and win two of them."
The Yellowjackets bring almost everybody back from last year's team that finished 2-8 overall and 2-7 in the Allegheny Conference, including leading passer and rusher Andrew Romanchak, and leading receiver Dylan Hochbein.
