Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Springfield Tigers

Posted: Updated:
NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -

The Springfield Tigers have eight players returning on offense and defense.

Up front is where the Tigers' fortunes rest. "We have Ryan Thompson, Anthony Stouffer, and Ben Chaszyca. Ryan is a three-year starter for us," said Coach Sean Guerriero. 
 
Those guys will be protecting junior quarterback Brannon Brungard, who threw for more than 1,100 yards and 15 touchdowns last year. "We can keep adding things. He'll be able to check the system and put him in good situations," said Guerriero on his two-year starter.

When the Tigers pass, they have a slew of receivers. Austin Trebella and Brandon Walters are back and have good speed, and they're also counting on Pat Bait and Garrett Walker.

The Tigers open the season on Saturday, August 26 at South Range's new stadium. 

"It's something we've talked about and it'll be a great challenge. We'll see where we're at and what improvements we need to make going into week two," Guerriero said.
