The Mustangs had their last winning record back in 2016. This year, there are new expectations. New head coach, Josh Staples, is at the helm, and he hopes to get back them back to success.

“We just talk about competing. What we want on Friday nights when we get going. We want to compete on the first kickoff, then we want to compete on the first play, a second down, third down, but we’re excited about the possibility of where we could go. We’re gonna be relying on a lot of younger guys, but competing, respecting, the whole process of it. I’m proud of them.

The team agrees with undergoing change within their program. Senior, Hunter Henson, say’s this season they have a new outlook on how they will take the gridiron for this years campaign.

“Very different from last year, we’ve grown together a lot more as a team, it’s a lot more of a brother hood this year instead of just a team. I think we can be a very, very good team. I think we can be a very good threat to some of the other things.

The Mustangs take on Trigg County for week one of play. Muhlenberg County is aiming to win its 5th consecutive season opener.
