Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Newton Falls Tigers

Posted: Updated:

The last time Newton Falls had a winning football record was in 2009. 

They hope to change that this season with seven starters back on offense and nine on defense.

"This is the year we've been building towards," said head coach Josh Franke. "This is the year we want to see results, " he added.

The Tigers return four guys up front led by Chris Rankin and Jacob Whisanaut.  Franke said, "I can't say enough about those two guys. They're here in the off season and to have them back this year is a plus." He added that the Tigers running game took a big step last year because of the guys on the line.

Offensively, quarterback Braden Bungard and running back Billy Wright return. Wright had more than 1,000 yards rushing and Franke expects him to have a better year in 2017.  Bungard has 10 games under his belt and Franke feels his experience only makes him better this season.

The Tigers also return wide receiver Paul Broderick who is coming off a solid 2016 season.
