MONON, Ind. (WLFI) — The North White football program is headed into its second season without Indiana Football Hall of Famer Jim Davis. Kirk Quasebarth took over the program after Davis' retirement in 2016.
Since being named head coach, the North White grad has had his fair share of struggles. The Vikings finished 2-8 a season ago.
Quasebarth's team will rely heavily on the run game. His team averaged over 100 yards rushing while chipping in 41 yards through the air last year. While seven seniors have graduated from last year's team, the Vikings have a young group working to fill big shoes.
"We have a lot of heart, a lot more teammate chemistry that we did last year, we have holes to fill but I think we're looking pretty good," said senior lineman Jack Lewis.
"We're working really hard on both sides of the ball, we have some pretty good guys coming up," said fullback Gavin Gross. "So I think we're going to be tough this year."
A lot of new players stepping into positions where we had 7-8 seniors last year," said Quasebarth. "A lot of new players getting opportunities out there, so we're coming around. The boys have had good attitudes and work ethic has been really good and we're slowly getting where we need to be."
