POTH -- With a good group of players returning from a team that went 10-3, and three rounds deep into the playoffs last year, its going to be “business as usual” for the Poth football program.

Head Coach Andrew King said he isn’t planning any changes to his system, or to the playbook this season. He has 14 returning lettermen in 2014, including nine starters on offense, and seven starters on the defensive side of things.

“The kids know it, are familiar with it, and should continue to improve within the system,” King said. “We aren’t doing anything different. We just want to keep improving.”

Being better for the start of the season in late August begins with the summer workouts, and King is pleased with the effort his kids made. There was good attendance for the scheduled summer workouts, and King said a lot of the younger kids went out and learned what it was all about. His players also competed in a 7-on-7 league in Pleasanton.

“The kids did well. I was pleased,” King said of his 7-on-7 team. “They won ’em all.”

There are a number of key players returning to the varsity roster this season, and on the offensive side, King said everything starts with senior quarterback Thomas Krawietz.

“He is a three-year starter and was the district MVP last year,” King said. “He is going to have to step up and make plays. He is going to have to get better at passing too.”

Another offensive weapon the Pirates will rely on is senior Koby Pruski. Pruski ran the ball well for Poth and will need to do the same thing again this season. Senior Sean Clancy will also receive a number of touches, and King expects a big year from him, as well.

On the defensive side of the ball, several of these same guys will play key roles. Pruski was a big-time player at linebacker for Poth last season, and his efforts won him the district’s defensive MVP award. King is also looking for good things from Clancy working out of his outside linebacker position.

In addition, King said he expects seniors Brett Kotara, Marcus Guevara, and John Waclawczyk to step up in a big way.

“Waclawczyk is a three-year starter on the line,” King added. “He has got to have a big year for us.”

The Pirates are now classified as Class 3A, though the school’s enrollment numbers didn’t really change. Their district remains quite similar to last year, and all of the familiar rivalries remain.

King believes the district is stronger overall this year, as several schools have “senior-heavy teams.” King said Blanco is going to be “salty,” and that Karnes City should be really good.

“Stockdale is gonna be huge, which could cause issues for us since we aren’t,” King said. “Nixon-Smiley is on a good path and Natalia is coming along, too.”

Winning another district title is always a goal for the Poth football team and King said that in order to get that done, his team needs to just take care of itself.

“It will be us taking care of our stuff,” he said. “We need to worry about getting better every week.”

The Pirates begin their 2014 campaign at home this Friday, Aug. 29, as they host the Randolph RoHawks. They will host Falls City on Friday, Sept. 5. All games are scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m.
