WOLCOTT, Ind. (WLFI) — Just off Interstate 65 the Tri-County Cavaliers are gearing up for year two of the Sam Zachery era. The Larry 'Bud' Wright protege lead the Cavs to an 8 -2 record in his first season, the first winning record for the program since 2007.
The bar has been set high in Wolcott, but this year's team needs to replace all 43 touchdowns that star quarterback Dalton Justice left behind after graduation.
Running back Sam Getz returns to a team that will feature a balanced attack on offense, while school valedictorian Hunter Musser will anchor the defense from the linebacker position. Hopes are high for a Cavalier program looking to string together Midwest Conference championships.
"Trying to get the seniors this year to take a leadership role and try to win another conference championship and make a sectional run, just trying to get people to step up from last year," said Musser. "The last couple years the seniors, the last year we had took a leadership role and lead us to an 8-2 season so I mean it has been hard but I think we're doing a pretty good job so far."
"Working for a conference championship which is going to be difficult Dalton Justice our star quarterback last year and hopefully making a sectional run," said Getz. "Our sectional is tough, but crazy things happen."
