The Madison County football team is hitting the field hard, as they look to make it back to the postseason again this year.

Head coach Stuart Dean says, "That's always a good thing to get that playoff experience, and return with that under your belt with your juniors and seniors.  But you start all over with another year, and you have to build from scratch."  

The cupboard is still pretty full for the Mountaineers, as Madison returns junior quarterback James Graves, as well as four senior pass catchers.

"Those guys come in with a step ahead of everyone else, knowing what we want to do in the pass game," says Dean.  "They know how to take the role as a leaders to get the season off on the right foot."

Senior tight end Sam Taylor says, "There's going to be a lot of pressure on us, but I think we can handle it."

Senior running back Immanuel Gentry says the offense will have to lead the way for Madison this season.

"We gotta do what we gotta do," says Gentry.  "Whatever it takes to score points.  Whatever it takes to win games."

Coach Dean says his seniors have been leading by example this year.

"Senior leadership has taken over from the very beginning," says Dean.  "They've done a very good job of that."

Gentry adds, "We have a lot of seniors who push the younger players to work hard, to give it all they can.  They do it in practice, and then turn it over to the games."

The Mountaineers play their first game September 6th at Luray.
