Muscle Connection High School Football Preview: Canfield Cardinals

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

The Canfield football program has lost about 15 players from a year ago, but the players they have are solid.

"We've got a really good senior class with 20," said Coach Mike Pavlansky. "We have three-year starters in fullback/linebacker Angelo Petracci, corner/wide receiver Paul French, two- ear starter Will Dawson and Paul Brienz."

The Cardinals return six on offense but no veteran under center. "We have a good competition going on right now with Vinny Fiorenzi and Max Dawson, and whoever our quarterback is, they'll need to get experience early," Pavlansky said.

With numbers down to around 50,  the Cardinals need to stay injury free. "We're in an area we haven't been in for awhile. We're going to limit contact in practices and hopefully save our guys for Friday nights. It'll be up to our seniors to do a little extra, like watch film and get extra work because those little things will pay off."

The Cardinals return eight on defense.
