RANDOLPH, N.Y. — In Randolph, there is a winning culture around its football program built by Coach Slater, who has compiled a 67-17 record since 2004, which includes a pair of state championships.
Last year's season ended with a disappointing first round playoff exit, but the offense still averaged 34 points per game. Several key contributors return to the offense and they're excited to add an air attack.
"We're opening up our offense a lot more. Usually it was just run, run, run and now coach has opened it up and brought in passing and it iS great to pass the ball instead up just run all the time," said running back Jordon Dowiasz.
If the Cardinals are going to keep up that offensive attack, one that scored at least 27 points in seven of eight games last year, they know it starts with the five big men up front.
"You don't have line guys, you are done. I mean, you can go to wide open all you want, but still if your line can't do anything, you are not going to be successful," said head coach Pat Slater.
"Hearing their voices working hard everyday makes me happy as a back and happy to have a line like that. That's that big and that determined, that they want to win, and that is going out and giving their best everyday at practice," said Dowiasz.
That line and the rest of the Cardinals get a rivalry game right out of the box when they travel to Frewsburg Friday.
