The Genoa-Kingston Cogs welcomed Bill McCarty back to the sidelines as head coach last year, finishing 5-5 with a second playoff berth in three seasons.
The Cogs are looking to improve on that .500 finish with a new crop of seniors that McCarty is looking forward to coaching and seeing take on the leadership role necessary to succeed in the Big Northern.
"Like most coaches would tell you, your seniors have to play the best football of their career. It's been a good group, there's a lot of good players there, good kids, and good people," McCarty said. "Hopefully for them they'll take it one game at a time and we'll see how it goes."
Genoa-Kingston starts their season on the road this Friday at Rockford Lutheran.
