Maroa-Forsyth football ready for return to state

Trojans coming off runner-up finish, get 18 seniors back from last year

MAROA -- Josh Jostes doesn't rebuild the Maroa-Forsyth football team, the longtime head coach reloads it.

It's no different for the Trojans this season, who are coming off a Class 2A runner-up finish.  The state trophy was the sixth in the last 11 years for the school.

"It's not like we're going to be hurting for depth," Jostes said. "However, we graduate a senior class last year that had 15 in it and was very good. Most of them had started for three years so we will have some inexperience."

"We don't have the name power that we did last year so it makes us want to work together as a team more," Maroa-Forsyth senior lineman Murt Jatoi said. "We've had a lot of people doubting us saying we're not going to be as good as last year, that just makes us all want to work harder I feel like."

Maroa-Forsyth opens the season Aug. 25 at New Berlin.
