(ABC 6 News) - The Rushford-Peterson Trojans are looking to improve on a 7-3 season last year as they turn to their youth for contributions.
The Trojans were a strong contender in Section-A football last year. but fell to Goodhue twice, including in sections. However, they graduated a slew of talent. Now they hand the offense over to sophomore Malachi Bunke.
"Throughout the first couple weeks of practice, everything is starting to slow down. It's fun being QB, a lot of pressure on your shoulders, but I can definitely handle it," Bunke said.
He will get help with the experience of running back Triton Meldahl who racked up 700 yards a season ago.
Hoping for their young core to perform well, the Trojans will be looking to capitalize on everything. This includes home-field advantage, where they were unbeaten last season.
Rushford-Peterson starts the season at home against Blooming Prairie on August 30.
