Tri-County Looks to Compete in CSAA Gold

HOWARD CITY – After coming off consecutive 3-6 seasons, the Tri-County football team is eyeing is first winning campaign since 2005.

The Vikings won two of their first three games a season ago, before facing the Central State Activities Association Gold’s top programs.

“We’re having more guys play both ways, so we got to be in shape, so that was part of our difference in camp is we spent a little bit more time conditioning, getting after it,” coach Phil Butler said. “We’re going to have eight to nine guys playing both way, so it’s going to be different than what we’re used to, but we’ll adjust.”

Tri-County has a smaller roster than in past seasons after graduating 25 seniors a year ago.

“Last year we had like 25 seniors, and there’s only like 25 guys on the team this year, so it’s definitely a big loss, but we’re adjusting well to it and it’s going to be good,” senior Cayden Luchies said.

Tri-County welcomes in Lakeview on Thursday, Aug. 24.
