Player to watch: Senior quarterback Jeff Schweitzer, who started last season and played well at combine camps in the summer. Schweitzer will be helped by a strong running game and a veteran offensive line. He will be pushed, though, by junior Caleb Wagner, who directed the junior varsity to an 8-1 record last season.
Date to circle: Aug. 29, the first home game, against always-strong Oconomowoc. This game could provide the first indication of how good the Warriors could be this season.
We say: Head coach Ken Krause is high on this team, and for good reason. The Warriors boast plenty of experience at quarterback, on the offensive line and on defense.
