Key weapons back on offense for Southridge Raiders as they return to 2-A


The Southridge Raiders are busy honing their patented wing-t offense, to perfection.

Southridge did graduate two big-time players from last year's offense. Dual-threat play-maker, Nolan O'Brien, and running back, Ross Eckert. However, the cupboard is not bare.

The Raiders will return two key pieces of their backfield. Quarterback Jayce Harter and wing-back, Tucker Schank, but they will need other guys to step up, and play larger roles in their ever-tricky, ball-control attack.

When the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) announced its bi-annual classifications earlier this year, Southridge moved from 3-A, back down to 2-A. The Raiders spent the previous two years in 3-A, but now they are excited to be back in the local 2-A sectional, with the likes of Mater Dei and North Posey.

A challenging road opener for Southridge opens the season next Friday, against last year's undefeated 1-A state champion, Linton-Stockton.
