Paul Wiggins will be embarking on his 8th year as our head coach, sporting a 53-34 record, coming off of a season where the 2021 Mustangs posted a 12-1, District Championship record for which he was named the NKFCA Coach of the Year.
Paul and his staff will face the challenge of replacing the quarterback-running back duo of Jacob Leicht and Jed Martin, who combined for over two thousand yards (2,431) on the ground, and Martin receiving All-State Honorable Mention honors, along with lineman Thomas Sayers, a finalist for the Northern Kentucky “That’s My Boy” Award..
We graduate a total of 11 contributing seniors who accounted for 249 of our 312 total points scored.
This is a mirror image of last season’s schedule. It contains games versus six Class 1-A opponents, a trio of Class 2-A rivals, and Pendleton County a Class 3A team.
On paper it certainly looks like a rebuilding year, much as it did a year ago, but while we will have some mighty big shoes to fill, the cupboard is certainly not bare. We return at least a dozen players with varsity experience and the nucleus of the 2021 JV team who went 4-0. We could also obtain reinforcements from a productive Jr High Colts program.
