After much hard work in the weight room during the off-season, the Port Pirates are preparing for an exciting upcoming season.
Head Coach Tim Greisch has reason to be optimistic with return of a strong senior class. Pirates senior leaders include Taylor Devenport, Zach Hauser, Max Kaske and Nick Godersky who are all three-year varsity letter winners.
After many injuries last season, Greisch is optomistic that this year the Pirates will stay healthy, making, "the sky is the limit for the Pirates."
All of the Port Pirate coaching staff is back this year with Coach Mike Riley, a retired UW-Stevens Point Football Coach, taking over as the varsity defensive coach.
Young players to watch this year are Mick Clark, Joe Burbach, Derek Haley and Marty Franzkowiak. Kicking this year will be handled by Kyle Pallo and punting by Nick Godersky.
The Pirates take on Westosha Central in the home opener at 7 p.m. Aug. 26 at the , Al Urness Field.
