Five Key Points

1.  Along with lineman Krauskopf, Kinnelon brings back a ton of experience behind David Cisco, Vito Caprio, Justin Lockwood and Jake Locascio.  Having a veteran line is going to pay big dividends against their schedule.
2. Kinnelon is making big upgrades in the skill positions with the guys mentioned above and other key contributors like CB Craig Smith, RB Antoine Kasabri and RB Quinn Duffy.  These are all athletic players who’ve put the time in the off-season which will translate into wins.
3.  Last season Kinnelon was 4-6, but what’s impressive is they got there after a 1-5 start which required the team to dig deep to do so.  That kind of toughness is something opponents must take very seriously.
4.  Coach Kevin White is a state champion winning coach so year-after-year his players buy into his program.  But he has a special knack for firing up his team with his pre-game speeches.  “I couldn’t even tell you what he says, but we are always ready to run through a wall after he give his pregame speech”, senior Joey Rymarz says.
5. The Colts have a lot of confidence which is important when facing a schedule like they have. There are no gimmies so staying diligent and focused is going to pay dividends. A five win season is doable and should give them enough Power Points to get to the dance.  Of course, winning more than five games won’t hurt either.
