Port Clinton Redskins

Head Coach: Von Graffin
Last Season: 9-14 overall
Returning Lettermen: 5
Returning Starters:  3
Pre-Season Media Day Prediction: 3rd of 7

Outlook: The Redskins will look to build on some of the 2014/15 successes for the 2015/16 season. Port Clinton was the only team to beat Edison (the 15/16 pre-season favorite) in Milan last season. Coach Von Graffin will look for that type of effort on a consistent basis this season. The Redskins had “Jekyll and Hyde” efforts last season going 9-3 when scoring 50 points or more, and going 0-11 when scoring less than 50.

Last Season:  20-4 overall
Returning Lettermen: 7
Returning Starters: 3
Pre-Season Media Day Prediction: 3rd of 7

Outlook: Coach Toby Bickel was named Division II Coach of the Year after a record setting season in 2014/15. His 2015/16 team will be built around seniors Adrianna Hall, Sydney Alexander, Marissa Day, and Bethany Urban. All four had key roles in bringing Port Clinton their first ever SBC championship last year. Seniors Kasey Swander and Ebony Kleinhans, and junior Taylor Rollins also contributed and lettered last season.

In Ohio athletics, there is often a vast difference between a public school in a rural setting and a private school from a large metropolitan area. The public school teams generally try to develop the players that attend their school, while the private schools often have the ability to recruit the best middle school athletes from a wide area. Bishop Hartley is #1 in the region for a good reason and showed it Saturday night in a 58-25 win over the Port Clinton Redskins.
