Grayling Looks to Return to Winning Form

GRAYLING – After posting just its second losing campaign since 2003 last year, Grayling looks to return to its winning form under second-year coach Eric Tunney.

The Vikings dropped their final three games last fall by eight points or less to end the year at 3-6 – their lowest win total since going 1-8 in 2002. Grayling also finished tied for third place with Benzie Central and Cheboygan in the Northern Michigan Football League Legends division at 3-3.

“Our conference is extremely tough. There’s no real slouches, so every week we got to bring our A-game,” Tunney said. “Last year we had a lot of games that were decided by one play, so finding a way to not put ourselves in that situation but when it does present that.”

“Every game is going to be the hardest game we have until we prove otherwise that we’re better than them,” added Grayling senior Parker Dole.

Grayling opens its season at home against Roscommon on Thursday, Aug 29. The Bucks won last year’s meeting 44-34.
