SOUTH RANGE SOFTBALL COACH’S CORNER (EP 1) WITH JEFF DEROSE

CANFIELD OH- South Range is coming off their second trip to the state championship game in the last 5 seasons. Once again, the Raiders had to walk away with the runner up trophy. With seven pieces of that lineup returning however, things still look bright for the Raiders. Coach DeRose is using the 2017 season as a learning tool. That was the season after their last state runner up season, where they returned eight players on the roster. That year the Raiders lost in the district tournament. He hopes that this team understands the work it takes to get back. It will be one of the hardest schedules the Raiders have put together in some time, and it all starts March 28th at Jefferson.

Jeff DeRose was able to join YSN’s Running Point this week to talk about the outlook for the 2022 season. He talks with Anthony Hartwig, and Ty Bartell about all the pieces returning, the schedule they’ve put together, and much more. Don’t miss out on this YSN exclusive in Episode 1 of Coach’s Ckrner with Jeff DeRose.

CANFIELD OH- South Range softball is off and running in 2021. The Raiders had high expectations coming into the season with seniors Bree Kohler, and Jillian Strecansky leading the charge. Not even Jeff DeRose could have expected the power the Raiders have brought to the start of the season. The team has already hit 5 HR by 5 different players.

Coach DeRose took the time to call in to YSN’s Running Point this week to chat with Ron Potesta and Anthony Hartwig. They discuss the quick start from his offense, what he expects from his seniors, and much more.

HEADED HOME: SOUTH RANGE LADY RAIDERS SOFTBALL PREVIEW

CANFIELD, OH – Head coach, Jeff DeRose and the South Range Lady Raiders are looking to overcome the disappointment they experienced last season like everybody else did due to COVID taking away their season. However 2021 begins a new season and the Lady Raiders are excited to be back on the diamond and the staff is eager to once again be coaching softball.

Looking back, Coach DeRose expected big things last year and wanted to fight for the conference title. The good news for the South Range Lady Raiders is that the majority of the current players play or have played travel ball and played a ton of games in the summer. Coach DeRose wants to pick right up from there and start off on the right foot straight out of the gate. With not many girls coming back from last year there will be new starters in places. Young but travel experienced. Coach DeRose will look to get the most out of his young and talented team as we move closer to first pitch.
