2019 Snapshot: Preble Shawnee

In his second year as head coach, David Maddox would like to see his Preble Shawnee team become more consistent. Considering the team lost just five starters from the 2018 Arrows squad that goal should not be hard to achieve.

“We have a good senior class and did not lose many players from the previous year. A majority of our seniors have been three-year starters, so overall we have a lot of varsity experience,” Maddox states.

That core of upperclassmen will be relied on heavily to bring newcomers along. “We do not have a lot of depth. Our starters have a lot of varsity experience, but not much varsity experience on our bench,” says Maddox.

Such is life in small school football. So many fingers are crossed that injuries don’t take their toll on the Arrows. Preble Shawnee, with the pieces they have in place, could make some noise if they stay healthy.
