The Titans earned a fifth consecutive WPIAL playoff berth last season. They tied for third place in the Big Nine Conference and were defeated by Indiana in the opening round of the playoffs. The Titans finished with a 6-4 overall record.
Ray Braszo is hoping for a return trip to the playoffs, but the veteran coach realizes it will be no easy task this season with only six starters back.
"We have a very young team," Braszo said. "We have 60 kids out for the team, and only eight are seniors. We also had a small senior class last year, with only 13 or 14. We have a lot of holes to fill and a lot of inexperienced players stepping in to fill them."
Karlyn Garner (6-2, 180, Sr., QB), Dylan Boytos (6-2, 220, Jr. G-DE) and Darwin Spencer (6-4, 260, Soph., T) are the only starters back on offense. Boytos has moved from center to guard. Garner, a two-year starter, threw for 624 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 474 and six scores last season.
