It was a bittersweet campaign for Goshen in 2020. The Warriors won the schools first ever playoff game. Unfortunately, they ended up with a losing record for the first time since 2014. The direction head coach Greg Miller and his squad move toward this fall will be one of the most intriguing stories east of the Queen City.

The Goshen offense will lack game experience. “We will play quite a few first-year lettermen, including six to seven sophomores,” Miller states.

The defense will carry the Warriors. “We have high-character, hard-working kids, some who are very experienced, taking the field. That will make it difficult for teams to find points on Friday nights,” Miller goes on to say.

Striving to be consistent will be a major goal for Goshen this offseason and into the early part of the schedule. If the Warriors can solve that dilemma, this team will have the chance to become the first in program history to make the playoffs in back-to-back years.

Connor Hellenthal, Sr, OL – Back for his third season as a starter. Hellenthal is the Warriors leader in the trenches.
