The Spartans are coming off a 2-9 season where they beat they Stafford/East Windsor, 32-6, and picked up a win by forfeit from Housatonic. But the Spartans played with a young roster that is now a year older.
Lucas Lanning, now a junior, has a full year under his belt as the starting quarterback and has taken the role as a leader for the Spartans.
“We believe in ourselves this year,” Lanning said.
Head coach Jose Santana is entering his second year and feels like his team battled last season as they lost a couple of close games.
“We were down 6-0 to G/N at halftime,” he said. “We lost to Granby on a 27-yard field in the last minute.”
With all the returning players throughout the roster, the Spartans will have to replace starting running back Max Stone, who graduated. Stone led the team with 633 rushing yards.
Still the hopes are high for this season in Burlington.
“After a first few games, we should be able to beat anybody,” wide receiver Grant McGregor said.
