Perrysburg football working to reload not rebuild

High school football season is just around the corner and many programs have been putting in the extra work this summer break. One of those teams is the Perrysburg Yellowjackets who has been working hard this summer with the hope of reloading instead of rebuilding after last year's successful season.

The Yellowjackets will have their work cut out for them since the team graduated 25 seniors from last yearâ??s squad. The biggest shoes they will have to fill will be finding the replacement for quarterback Steve Slocum who led the Yellowjackets in passing and all purpose yards. Slocum even led the team in scoring and set the school's scoring record last season.

Head coach Matt Kregel said it is just a matter of reloading nstead of rebuilding for his program. Kregel believes he has a good returning core of players and says he has 3-4 athletic quarterbacks competing for the open spot.

Perrysburg will be tested early and often this upcoming season. The Yellowjackets open the 2013 football season hosting St. John's Jesuit August 23rd followed by Whitmer, Clay, and Central Catholic.
