Central Montcalm Confident as 2016 Begins

STANTON – Despite a 2-7 season in 2015, the Central Montcalm football program is eyeing a quick turnaround this year.

With a quiet confidence, the Hornets are seeking their second postseason bid in three seasons.

"Our confidence is up, and I think that’s a lot, because when you put work in in the offseason, you feel better about yourself, and it’s contagious, and some of the younger guys are starting to catch it, and it’s fun to be around,” coach Dave Clay. “I’m more excited for this season than I’ve been in a while."

What the Hornets lack in size up front, they make up for in speed, athleticism and attitude.

"We have a really hard-working group, and there are a lot of individuals that really want… we all want the same thing, a league championship,” senior Hunter Veltkamp said.

"Our intensity has been there. Everyone is focused,” added senior William Nava. “They’re here to get to work, they’re not messing around. They’re just ready to get after it and ready to get after our goals."

Central Montcalm opens its season at Morley Stanwood on Aug. 25.
