WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Every year high school football coaches across the country deal with the departure of talent due to graduation.
Terry Peebles is dealing with the departure of a lot of talent and that's an understatement.
Harrison loses a senior class which produced three all-state selections and nine all-conference honorees.
The 2018 class also helped the Raiders post back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 1996.
Peebles is now forced to reload with a new cast.
Andrew Jensen steps in at quarterback replacing Jonathan LaGuire. Isaiah Armstrong is set to lead the team's backfield with Dawson Dahnke gone.
Armstrong's twin brother, Isaac, is the lone returning starter in Harrison's secondary.
Harrison opens the new season at home against Westfield. The Shamrocks have beaten the Raiders in seven straight meetings dating back to 2010..
But like the Raiders graduating class, the Shamrocks' winning streak is a thing of the past.
Peebles' squad is concerned with refining their game-plan ahead of Friday night.
