WINDSOR (WBNG) -- With a much larger senior class this season, the Windsor Black Knights are hoping experience will be the key to be successful this season.
"We were really young last year," said head coach Tim Hogan. "We actually had four freshmen starting on varsity last year. We were junior heavy."
Last season the Black Knight had only five seniors on the squad. This season they have 14 seniors helping lead the way as they face some tough Class B opponents.
"It's the same group that we've had since last year but this time we want to turn things around and have some fun," said senior wide receiver and cornerback Ryan Kennedy.
One key position that needed to be filled was at quarterback. Hogan said the coaching staff wasn't too worried about who was going to fill Ethan Reed's shoes this season.
"The good thing is Jimmy Lindsely is our quarterback as of right now," said Hogan. "He was a really good sophomore quarterback on JV so we brought him up later in the year. When he was on JV he was explosive and he still has that."
Windsor doesn't have to worry about filling the wide receiver positions since Kennedy and classmate K.J. Hagley are returning to their positions this fall.
"Mentally I'm prepared for what's to come," said Kennedy. "I know what to expect. Ready to get after it."
Hagley is in his second season on varsity and his second season playing football at the high school level.
"Every time I step on the field I try to be a dog," said Hagley. "I try to be the best I can be. I try to be a leader."
With an experienced senior class, the Black Knights are hoping to turn things around in the fall.
"It's going to be unexpected the things that we do this year," said Hagley. "We have a lot of talent. We have a lot of chemistry too. I think that's really going to help us throughout the season."
With Whitney Point moving to 8-man football this season, Windsor is still looking for an opponent for week one.
