FLORA, Ind. (WLFI) — Monday marked day one of the high school football season for teams around the state of Indiana. In Flora, the Carroll Cougars enjoyed an 8-2 season, losing in the first round of sectional play to the eventual state champion Pioneer.

Kevin Sayler's team returns four starters on the offensive line including Hunter Wilson, who garnered all-conference and all-state honors. Running back Ayden Ayres is also back. The junior rushed for nearly 600 yards and 8 touchdowns in 2017.

While last year was a success, the seniors on this year's team are looking to build upon the past. 

"Our seniors last year were incredible, great leadership, and so just building off what they taught me and what I got from coach, and watching our starter last year and just building up from what I've learned backing up our guy for three years," said senior quarterback Lucas Gamel. 

"I've grown up oldest in my class, so playing with the older guys I got to learn how they do it," said senior defensive lineman John Lambert. "So this year is easier on me, teaching the young kids, I like it a lot. Going and being a leader is fun for me, I like that."
