When a high school football team sees a large senior class graduate that experienced a lot of success, a lot of uncertainty is left for what the next year will look like.
Washington High School football Coach Darrell Crouch is hoping a young group he has that will largely fill those spots from last year's 6A playoff quarterfinal team will be able to tap into experiences of the last few seasons and will lead to success this fall.
Coach Crouch indicates this summer he took a little different approach with his team because of having to bring kids along with limited experience. He credits this group for working hard in the weight room all summer.
For Coach Crouch and his Panthers football program, they like to get to the power run. He says in that power run, they'll go to several formations to give a different look.
With practices starting up next week, Coach Crouch says his goal is to just get his young players reps and get better at the things they want to do. No matter how young his team is, its their goal to compete for the Mid-Illini Conference title and peak at the end of the season.
