(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's time for Chafield's state title defense to begin.

The Gophers open up against Fillmore Central Friday, but it's a very different team from the one that took home the Class 2A title a year ago.

Gone are Jake Neis, Nate Skare, Jayme LaPlante and company, but there's a group of 17 seniors that want their own shot at glory in 2014.

"You're going to have high expectations whether you like it or not, but the expectations of our kids are to win a lot of football games," Chatfield head coach Jeff Johnson said.

The Gophers enter the season on a 13-game winning streak.
