SOUTHINGTON, OHIO (WYTV)-Bill Bohren said that he couldn’t stand not being on the sidelines last year coaching high school football. So at 80-years young, Bohren will look to take Southington to the next level and bring the Wildcats a winning season.
Bohren, who has 288 career wins, inherits six returning starters on both offense and defense including a slew of skill position players on offense that will need to help out a young offensive line. Both their leading passer, Travis Lehman, and rusher, Cody Helmuth will lead the way in Bohren’s first year in charge at Chalker.
“You know I think these kids play hard, and we are going to make it that if you come in here on Friday night, it is going to be tough for you. If we can win 6 games we can make it into the playoffs, that should be our goal,” says Bohren.
A weak spot for the Wildcats could be their defense, they lost their top-four tacklers from last year that were a part of a defense that allowed more than 30 PPG. But the Wildcats say they have a big chip on their shoulder.
“I am ready for it. I have a lot to redeem, we as a team have a lot to redeem. People have been putting us down but we are going to show them something new,” says senior RB/CB Zack Weaver.
“It needs to start with us because it is the first year with Coach Bohren and the new staff and we really need to show that with a good coaching staff in place, we can have success here,” said senior QB/OLB Tait Kline.
Southington will open the 2015 campaign at Jackson-Milton.
