They may have a new coach with a new season underway, but the winning has continued as the Wynford Royals have started 2012 at 4-0 after wins over River Valley, Mohawk, Riverdale and Buckeye Central.  The last two by shutout.  First year head coach Gabe Helbert has been happy with the progress his team has made and very happy with his defense over the last two weeks, but maintains his team must get better as they head into the second half of the season with teams like Ontario, Upper Sandusky, Col.Crawford, Galion and Bucyrus yet to come. 

On the subject of the team's regular season winning streak which has reached 62, Helbert says the team takes pride in the fact that it's the states longest current streak, but at the same time nobody really talks about it they just go out and try to win every week. 

On defense through four weeks, the Royals have only given up 27 points which leads the NCC and in team defense the Royals are also at the top giving up just 419 yards through four games on the ground and only 244 yards through the air.  Wynford is also second in overall team offense to Col.Crawford with 572 yards coming off the pass, 922 on the ground.   

Heading into their week five matchup with 0-4 Crestline the Royals are in a familar position in the OHSAA football computer rankings at number one in Division Five, Region 19.  Wynford has advanced to the post season the past seven consecutive years finishing as regional champions and state semifinalists in 2011.
