COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) – Crestview has been at the top of the ITCL class for awhile now. They have turned in winning seasons in all ten years of league play, including 6 ITCL titles.
Things won’t come easy for the Rebels this year as they have lost a lot of talent, but expectations are still high.
Head Coach Paul Cusick is back for a 21st season at the helm, leading the Rebels to 8 straight playoff appearances.
Cusick will have to replace 4 first-team All-League performers.
Defense should be a strength, led by senior Daniel Murphy, who had 10 sacks last season. He already has a number of division-one offers. Classmate Jack Davis is also back on the defensive line.
The offense is young with Junior Caleb Hill likely under center after seeing limited time last season. Senior Tackle Jacob Scheller will be there to lead this young team.
The Rebels will compete in the ITCL Red Tier where they went 3-1 in division play, last season. A couple of big games down the stretch with South Range, Springfield, and Lisbon to close out the season.
