Banks on this year’s team: “Our line has to be our offensive strength this season with five returning (Banks, Martus, Hoff, Knox, Kyle Lindsay) and Yonkowski and Dan Lindsay at guards - if we can have our guards get better each week at running the Wing-T offense. We graduated all of our speed last year, so we need to execute with our OL and take care of the football. As with the offense, our line has to be our strength defensively. We return two LB’s from last year (Primeau, Yonkowski), we we have some experience there. We also need to stay away from injuries..... if we can do that, I think we should, again, be competitive this season and, hopefully, get another crack at the playoffs.”

Banks on the GTC East: “Until somebody beats Ubly, they are the team. Marlette returns quite a group from last year and will be tough; Sandusky, year in and year out, is a tough group; Harbor Beach will be much improved from last season.”
