With the loss of a talented senior class that earned six scholarships to play college football, the Ontario Warriors and head coach Scott Kreger, aren't exactly sure what to expect this season.

"I honestly don't know," Kreger said, when asked what the team will look like in 2014.

"I know we have the ability to be very good, but on the other hand, in the league, we play in a tough league, if we don't come out and perform up to our ability week in and week out, it could be the flip side of that."

The Warriors return just four starters on offense and only five on the defensive side of the ball. Kreger also had to fill the teams open quarterback spot with their top returning wide receiver, Alex Vrendenburg, leaving a mostly inexperienced receiving corps.

Ontario figures to rely on the ground attack and senior running back Matt Eichelberger this season, who saw extended playing time at the end of their 2013 campaign. Kreger says he expects a couple of juniors to surprise some people on the field this year, and noted a strong leadership presence from the senior class.

Ontario will scrimmage at Lima Bath on Friday, their last dress rehearsal before opening the season at Lexington on August 29. The team will begin their second season in the Northern Ohio League on September 19 at home with Willard.

The Warriors will be looking to improve on last seasons 5-5 mark, finishing 2-4 in the NOL.
