DAYTON – The West Side Pirates open the fall football campaign on Friday, Aug. 29, at Firth at 7 p.m. and will have an experienced team to battle the Cougars in a non-conference rivalry.
Head Coach Tyson Moser said his team hasn’t suffered any injuries yet and will be ready to head to Firth on Friday.
“The boys are ready to go and we’re in the process of fine-tuning things,” he added.
“We have 16 returning seniors. It’s the biggest class of returning seniors I’ve had since being named the head coach a few years back,” he said.
“These seniors have had a lot of success in the past couple of years.”
Peyton Brown took over the roll of head signal caller last year and will head the Pirate’s offense this fall. Moser said one bright spot for the Pirates this year is its offensive line.
Moser said Firth also brings back an experienced crew of players this fall and the game will be a good test for the rivals.
After the opening game at Firth, West Side plays the Rich County Rebels the following Friday at home.
Preston plays Park City on Friday at 7 p.m. at Park City High School. It’s the first time the two schools have played each other.
The following two games will also be on the road against Star Valley, Wyo., and Marsh Valley, respectively.
The Indians’ home opener will be on Sept. 19 against 3A powerhouse Snake River.
