Beaverton Readies to Turn Corner in 2016
BEAVERTON – Entering its fifth season under coach Aaron Seiser, the Beaverton football program is closing in on turning the corner in 2016.
After posting their first winning season (5-4) since 2000 two years ago, the Beavers lost five of their first six games last season before settling for a 3-6 finish.
With perimeter players returning on both sides of the ball, and with its starting quarterback returning, Beaverton is eyeing an improved finish in a loaded Jack Pine Conference.
"I expect us to be efficient,” Seiser said. “We’ve been doing our program since I’ve been the head coach here, this is our fifth year. We’re starting to see where kids kind of have a better idea what’s expected of them, they come into camp a little more prepared every year. I like the way the kids act, they know the expectations, they’re playing hard, but we still have some humps we need to get over. There’s a whole mental game that we need to do, and prepare for and get over."
Beaverton opens its season at St. Louis on Aug. 25. The Beavers then kick off their home slate against Harbor Beach on Sept. 1.
