Big Red slated for 6th place finish in league race

For the first time in over a quarter century someone other than Steve Robb will patrol the sideline for the Milan Football program. Jesse Hoskins, a 2001 Milan graduate takes over the program after spending the last handful of season as the JV coach.

Offensively, the Big Reds are most likely to be led by junior QB Justin Aceves. His favorite target is sure to be 1st team All Huron League WR Tory Martinson. The offensive line will be anchored by senior lineman Blake Edelbrock while Steven Price has experience at tight end. Look for a different look from Milan this year on offense as the Big Reds look to go to one back set more often.

Defensively, Milan will be led by LB Luke Karr along with DB Cody Freeman. Juniors Blaine LeClair and Ty Peterson are expected to have solid seasons for the Milan defense as well.

Milan opens up with Ypsi High again this season before opening league play against Jefferson. Last season the Big Reds defeated the Phoenix 25-24 while finishing the season at 6-4.
