Northview football team expanding, working hard

Posted: Updated:
SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Wildcats have more bite this year at Northview.

Coach Marek Moldawsky is beginning his third year with the school. He says there's unlimited passion for the game and an increase in players is helping.

"When I started here, we had 58 kids, freshmen through varsity," Moldawsky said. "Now we're at 102, so that is going to make it…actually much easier to have depth at key positions."

Until the offense gels, Northview hopes the defensive intensity helps lead the way.

"We've just got a group of guys that are really excited to play, really excited to win," said senior Jake Bilek.

"A lot more players are coming out, and they're doing a lot better," added Preston McCurdy, also a senior. "They're working hard and they're trying to do better for the school."

After going three and seven in 2012, is it too soon to hope for a breakout year?

"It is a work in progress. I expect to be improved this year," Moldawsky said. "But it depends on if we can get over the hump, mentally. I think the kids have demonstrated a commitment off the field that is necessary to be successful on the field."
