FALLS CITY -- Dealing with player loss from graduation is never an easy thing, but when you literally lose half of your team, it creates some unique challenges. Thus is the case in Falls City, as Head Coach Steve Marbach and his staff focus on the 2013 season.

Marbach said the Beavers had a great spring, as his players got faster and stronger. He will definitely miss the seniors he lost, but is also excited about the potential in many of his young players, and there are several sophomores on this year’s roster.

The Beavers’ greatest team strength lies in their speed, and Marbach gave his guys great praise, describing them as “extremely fast.” He points out that while there may not be that one guy for defenses to key in on with every play, there are lots of different guys who can make a difference.

“There are lots of guys who can do something with the ball,” he said.

If there is a general “weakness” in the Beavers’ roster, it is their lack of size and depth at the lineman position. To illustrate the fact, Marbach pointed out that his center is actually one of the fastest guys on the team. And when it comes to the scales, there are only a couple of guys who weigh in at more than 200 pounds.

Coaches at smaller schools often have to make adjustments to their offensive and defensive schemes to match their player personnel, but Marbach is fortunate that this year’s team lines up well with what he is most comfortable doing.

With the ball in their hands, the Beavers will continue to evolve from what they did last year. Falls City ran a lot of option last year, but will work more from the spread this year.

“We will still run some option, but we will do it out of the spread,” he offered. “We have a wide play book. What we use most depends on the kids.”

Defensively, the Beaver front line will be all new this year, as every starter was lost to graduation. Several returning players saw playing time last year, though, and Marbach is confident they will fill the holes quickly. The Beavers will be strong in the secondary, and Marbach is thrilled that All-State linebacker Eric Wiatrek is back another year.

When it comes to district competition, Marbach said he knows it will be another good battle for the title. Woodsboro gave Falls City the most trouble last year, and the Eagles are likely to be contenders for the crown again this go-around. Marbach said Runge has “huge kids,” and that they will be very physical. He expects them to challenge for the title. Pettus graduated many of its skill players, but will be better up front this year.

As for Louise, Marbach has them pegged as the dark horse. The Hornets have switched to the Tony Franklin System this year, and the offense is a “180 from where they were,” according to Marbach. Tony Franklin is the famed offensive coordinator whose system has been implemented in hundreds of high schools and colleges all over the country, often turning a program around completely. Franklin’s offense at Louisiana Tech last year led the nation with more than 50 points per game.

When it comes to the players to watch, Marbach quickly mentioned Wiatrek. In addition, he expects big things from Dean Gaskamp at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and in the defensive secondary. John Sekula, William Stolle, and Devon Lyssy will be expected to have a big year on the line, and Marbach said he is excited to see what sort of year Stephen Harlos has at tight end. Marbach wouldn’t be surprised to also see a big year from Joseph Swierc, going so far as to describe the sophomore as one of the hardest-working players on the team.

Another player creating preseason buzz in Falls City is Justin Twine, a move-in from Hemphill. Twine was a standout quarterback at his school last season, and is a multi-sport athlete who already has a baseball scholarship commitment to TCU. Marbach described Twine as a “phenomenal athlete” and said he could be a true “difference maker” this year for the Beavers.

The Beavers faced Ingram and Kenedy in a pair of scrimmages, but will begin their 2013 season this Friday, Aug. 30, as they welcome the Jourdanton Indians to Beaver Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
