Lafayette looking to get back to their winning ways in 2018
Following back to back trips to the state final for the Lafayette, the 2017 season was a step in the wrong direction. The Generals three-win season was not the next step the team was hoping to take.
Last year was a reality check," said Lafayette head coach Eric Shaw. "Sometimes when you reach a level of success you can kind of get caught up in it. We had a lot of different things happen last year."
The Generals are leaving last year in the past and taking a team approach this year.
"There's not really going to be one stand out guy," said offensive lineman Ian Sexton. "It's going to be a lot of different people doing a lot of different things."
Offensive lineman Tyler Moore agrees.
"I don't feel like we're going to have stand out guys," said Moore."but we've got players. We've got guys that are going to show up and they're going to surprise some people."
Eric Shaw may not have the Division One standouts of past years, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have talent.
"I got some players," said Shaw. "I mean at the end of the day to compare the groups to previous groups is really unfair to the current group. So I have players. I have some talent."
Those players will determine the season's success.
"At the end of the day it's about what they want," said Shaw. "You know I could want us to go win a state title this year, and I want that every year. That's the goal, and that's the goal that they set for themselves."
