Such was certainly the case a year ago, when after losing seven quality seniors, and multi-school record holder, Trevor Schadler, from a 5-3 Covid shortened season, our Mustangs did the seemingly impossible – running the table, sweeping all regular season and district competition to go 12-0, prior to losing our only game of the year to Raceland in the Regional Finals.
Here we are again, bringing an unproven team, which lost 11 seniors from its 37 man roster that included the duo of three year quarterback Jacob Leicht and running-back Jed Martin, who combined to rush for over 2,400 yards.
While our numbers have swollen from 37 to 50, Evan Orth remains the only consistent member of that backfield to return. A year ago, it was our defense which was stellar, allowing only 36 regular season and district playoff points via touchdown. Many key components from that unit have also been lost to graduation. Despite losing 11 seniors and a rebuilding season on the horizon, the prevailing feeling is that it will be football business as usual in Alexandria.
Our Mustangs are led by the 2021 Northern Kentucky Football Association Coach of the Year, Paul Wiggins, who is in his 9th year as our head coach and will draw on the experienced gained a year ago by our returning varsity players, a successful JV team, and a Colts Junior High program who has provided potential impact players – We are the 2022 Brossart Football Mustangs, and we firmly believe that the best is yet to come. It all gets underway Friday night at 7pm when we take on Independent Class 1A opponent Dayton at historic Davis Field.
