"Those first six games were rough. We didn't know how to win as a team."
Boylan senior quarterback Zach Couper honestly assesses how hard it was for the Titans to go through their 2015 season a year ago. Starting 0-6, Boylan won their last three games to end on a high note, and are hopeful to carry that into 2016.
"This senior class, we're very urgent to get out there and play and show everyone we can repeat what we did at the end of last year," Couper said.
The Class of 2016, under those tough circumstances, carried themselves in a positive way that trickled down to their younger teammates.
"They showed the juniors, our current seniors, how to practice, how to handle it, the good and the bad, and through all the bad moments, everyone stayed really positive," said Boylan head coach John Cacciatore.
"We're definitely a close group of seniors," says Boylan's Jack Foley. "We came together and said we don't want another 3-6 season."
Couper will be under center for the Boylan offense, a spread attack that he lead last year, and will manage as a senior. The Titans start their season next Friday night against NIC-10 rivals Belvidere.
