Northview looks to be the dark horse this football season

Northview's football team hard at work this offseason

After finishing the 2012 football season with 3-7 record and losing to opponents by an average of 32 points, Northview's football team knew it needed to make a change. This off season, the Wildcats have been hard at work to turn their football program around.

Since the end of the 2012 season, the Wildcats have spent two out of their four days of weekly workouts at the Fitness 4 All Extreme Team Training Center in Perrysburg. The Wildcats receive speed, strength, and agility training from Fitness 4 All's professional training staff, including Fitness 4 All owner and former Miami Dolphins trainer Keith Zoeller. The training provided by Zoeller and his staff has been free-of-charge for Northview's football team as a community outreach effort.

Northview's coaches have already noticed drastic physical improvements, but the dramatic change has been in the team's expectations for the upcoming season.
