This is going to be an interesting season for the Lancaster Football program. This will be the first season since 1998 that there is a new coach leading the Gales on the Gridiron.

I look for coach Bryan Schoonover to breath some new life and excitement into a program that I think has the potential to be one of the top programs in Central Ohio.

Tough schedule . Good coaching hire. In the last couple years we have seen the end of era’s and long time coaches departing at Davidson Coffnan and Lancaster . Time stands still for no man , or program.
Good luck to the Gaels as they start their new era . I agree. 97 , I see some potential as well

I agree, lots of potential at Lancaster, but that is a brutal opening 5 games. Be patient with the new coach- he will get them going

Knowing enough about the new coach I can say he is probably putting more pressure on himself than the fan base is. He wants to see these kids succeed on and off the field.

Heard the weight room is going well. Kids are working hard and strong.

From everything I have heard you are correct. Not sure the numbers but sounds like participation is up for non spring sport athletes. Hopefully it translates to more numbers this fall. For the Gales to be successful they need to find a way to play their best athletes fewer snaps as two way players and the only way to do that is more athletes on the roster.

Lancaster won OCC-Buckeye championships in wrestling, baseball, and track and field this past winter and spring. I believe the school has the athletes to really be competitive in football. It’s just a matter of getting them to come out in the fall. I truly believe that a new coach at the helm is going to make a huge difference. Can’t wait for football season

If they go 1-9 I am sure everyone will be happy that they are unified.

“To prepare youngsters to face the future with sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, responsibility, self-discipline, positive aspirations, academic preparedness, and confidence. If we teach them positive lessons, such as playing by the rules, our young athletes will learn to live by the rules.” Reynolds goes on to explain that “the majority of our athletes will go on to be professionals in something beyond football, and the league has dedicated itself to the development of character and life lessons that will stay with our kids well beyond their years of playing football”

That’s way more important than wins and losses…but if the kids buy into the system and learn those lessons the wins will come and Lancaster will once again be one of the better D1programs in the state of Ohio.
