EAST LIVERPOOL, OH- The numbers 3, and 7 consecutively are not charming in the eyes of Potter Nation. For three straight seasons, the East Liverpool Football Program finished with a disappointing 3-7 status. This year, Coach Ludwig and his staff feel the change from the foundation up. You can see it on the field in their new uniforms. You can hear it in the way they talk about this year. You can point out how they refer to their historic program
“120 times prior to today, this picture has been taken. We feel privileged to be 121” Ludwig said at media day while his team was frozen for a team photo. This is the 121st year of East Liverpool Football, and while the recent history hasn’t been kind to the Potters, history tells us East Liverpool is never down for long. “We’re going to show what we can do up front, and show everybody that we’re not just here to play around. We actually want to do some good things this year,” says Senior Lineman, Joaquin Johnson
The Potters return all starters on offense and will have to improve on 2017’s numbers where they averaged just over 50 yards per game through the air. If their ground-game stays consistent, it will allow the White and Blue Wrecking Crew to control the pace of the game, and take pressure off the defense who gave up 26.5 points per game in 2017.
Overall, the future is now for the Potters and now looks great from all standpoints. Ready to get back to their winning ways, East Liverpool is set to kickoff against Shadyside at home on August 24th at 7:30. Tommy and Rob will have the call on YSN-East Liverpool all year!
