Sentinel Football Team Off to Hot Start

Posted: Updated:

While most around the state wouldn't have predicted Sentinel would start the season at 2-1, it's no surprise to many of the Spartans, and  in order for it to continue being a good year, the players know it all comes down to attitude.

"We've been working hard, and I think our work in practice is paying off, we've been putting in a lot of plays, and have been executing well.  I think our focus in practice has been paying off.  We've been having good games without too many penalties and have been playing effectively," says senior linebacker Tyler Richtmyer.

"We've just gone into every game with a more positive attitude, that we're going to come out on top and that we'll be more victorious this season, we've all been living cleaner lives, staying up on school-work, and working out more, and everything like that," adds senior running back  Logan Ganieany.

While the team spent countless hours in the weight room anticipating the season, even head coach Dane Oliver agrees, their attitude could be the most important change.

"That's the biggest factor without a doubt is their mental approach to the game.  We talk about training the mind, and positive train of thought.  And you can see those results show up on the field, but it's also a direct result of the work they've put in," says Oliver.

Not to mention for the players starting out with a win over CMR and Cross-town Rival Big Sky it's a welcome way to start.

"We've been having a lot of fun.  I'm a senior now, and we're top dogs and that always makes it a lot more fun, but the overall attitude has been more positive and we've been having fun," says Richtmyer.
