Coming off its deepest playoff run since 2003, Mariemont has plenty to look forward to this fall. The Warriors have not had a losing season since 2009. They now look to take things to the next level after that taste of sweet success, a year ago.

“I’m excited for our team to grow this season and find new players to be bellcows. Our numbers have grown, construction is wrapped on a new weight room and school. The community is really behind our team after a great run last season,” Head coach Nick Leone states.

Mariemont graduated its two biggest playmakers (Seth Greene and Andrew Glassmeyer). Those are big holes to fill at defensive end, running back and quarterback. “We will be leaning on players at other positions for leadership,” Leone says.

The cupboard is not bare, however. The Warriors return five offensive linemen that have varsity experience, all starters at receiver along with the majority of their defensive linemen and linebackers. With the expansion of the playoffs from eight to 12 teams Mariemont could do some damage again in the postseason.
