EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) Our Home Team Friday previews continue tonight with a trip to North. Blake Sandlin, the newest member of our team, previews the Huskies’ upcoming season.
After a 1-9 season in Joey Paridaen’s first year as coach of the North Huskies, the team made massive strides, finishing at 5-5. That record was the team’s first non-losing season since 2012, so it’s safe to say the Huskies had their sights set high coming into this year.
Ethan Brawdy: “Nobody really gave us a chance coming in off a 1-9 season,” Coming in as a first-year varsity player and being able to lead the team to 5-5, the first winning season, but that was good for our team and I think we’re going to carry that energy over to next year.
Joey Paridaen: “They have an expectation for not only themselves, but each other now. Our group that we had last year really kind of laid a good foundation for hopefully future teams to come. You know, I’d say the comradery has really picked up.”
Capoleton Presswood: “My expectation is to have a winning season and sectional title. I expect nothing else from our team, and I know once we get in that zone and lock in I feel like we’re going to be good and we’re going to be ready to go, for sure. No problems.”
North will officially open up their season August 21 against Castle.
