Airport is coming off of consecutive losing seasons for the first time since the 1996-97 seasons. The Jets finished last season with a 4-5 record, but there is cause for optimism as several key players return for 3rd year Head Coach Chad Baas.
The offense for the Jets will be led by senior RB Dylan Meiring who rushed for nearly 1,500 yards last season. Bryce Cole returns at quarterback for the Jets and will have a big target at TE in junior Brent Mossburg. The offensive line will be led by senior Derek Woodley.
The defense will be led by two seniors in LB Jake Fahnestock and safety Austin Patterson. Look for a big year from junior LB Justin Gorteski.
The Jets open at home with Adrian and then will travel to New Boston to take on Huron in the first game of league play the following week. Prediction: 5-4
