McDowell 2013 Football Preview (8-14-13)

Trojans Football Preview
MARK SOBOLESKI'S TROJANS ARE COMING OFF A SEVEN AND SIX SEASON - BUT DON'T JUDGE THAT BOOK BY ITS COVER.  FOUR OF THOSE LOSSES CAME TO THE TOP TEAMS IN OHIO, ONE TO THE STATE CHAMPS FROM CATHEDRAL PREP AND THE LAST IN THE QUAD-A STATE QUARTERFINAL ROUND TO NORTH ALLEGHENY. 
AND AS THE LONE QUAD-A TEAM IN DISTRICT TEN - THE TROJANS WILL RUN THAT GAUNTLET AGAIN THIS SEASON.
LEADING THE TROJANS OPTION OFFENSE IS JUNIOR QUARTERBACK JAKE TARASOVITCH - WHO SOBOLESKI SAYS HAS WORKED HARD ON HIS PASSING IN THE OFFSEASON. 
SPINNING WHEN STARTING QUARTERBACK JARRETT KOPER BROKE HIS LEG BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED.  WHILE KOPER'S GONE. . .McDOWELL'S BIGGEST DEPARTURES HAVE TO BE RUNNINGS BACK JAMES CONNER WHO'S AT PITT AND KHYRE DRAYER.
BUT WITH JAMIE SZYMCZAK AND TYREE SPEARMAN BACK TO LEAD THE BACKFIELD - McDOWELL SHOULDN'T MISS A BEAT.
AND THE TROJANS ALSO FEATURE THE AREA'S TOP KICKER AND PUNTER IN IETHAN STARK - WHO HAS WORKED WITH CHICAGO BEARS KICKER ROBBIE GOULD SINCE HIS FRESHMAN YEAR.
THE TROJANS OPEN THE SEASON AT OHIO POWER MENTOR.
