PREP FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Looking to rebound

Redskins hope to finish regular season on up note

GOSHEN —  With Sunday night’s sectional draw, the Goshen Redskins know who they will be playing next week in the first round of the Class 5A Sectional 2 tournament: Goshen drew a home game against South Bend Adams.

But one week of the 2012 regular season remains, and Goshen (2-6 overall, 2-4 NLC) looks to head into the postseason on a winning note when they travel to Wawasee to take on the Warriors (4-4, 3-3).

The Redskins have been making improvement on offense in recent weeks, according to head coach Mike Cheviron.

Indeed, Goshen had its second-highest offensive output of the season last week against Plymouth in a 28-16 loss.

But even with that relatively high point total, Goshen is still averaging just 8.8 ppg.

“We still need to score more points,” Cheviron said.

Cheviron saw positives in last week’s loss, including the play of his defense, which forced a key second-half fumble.

But the takeaway was negated on the next play as the Redskins fumbled the ball right back to the Rockies.

“Those things are frustrating,” Cheviron said.

This week, the Redskins will take on a Wawasee squad that has won its last two, including a 14-13 upset of Warsaw in Week 7.

“They’ve been up and down a bit this season,” Cheviron said.

Goshen defensive lineman Robby Hoemig said the Redskins should have a size advantage over the Warriors.

“They are small but quick,” Hoemig said.

Redskin offensive lineman Alberto Velasquez said offensive balance will be key for his team.

“We should be able to run the ball, but we need to be on top of our pass blocking so we can throw,” Velasquez said.

The Redskins are coming off  the aforementioned 28-16 loss to Plymouth a week ago; Wawasee bested Elkhart Memorial, 14-9.

The series over the past 15 years has gone to the Redskins, 10-5. Wawasee topped Goshen, 23-12 a year ago.

Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. at Warrior Stadium.

Local radio coverage will be available on the Internet at www.elkhartcountysports.com. The pregame show starts at 7:30 p.m.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
