Morley Stanwood football returns plenty in 2015

MORLEY – With nearly 90 percent of its team returning this fall, Morley Stanwood has plans to make its second consecutive postseason appearance.

After graduating just three players from last year’s roster, Morley Stanwood is aiming to build off last season’s second-place finish in the Central State Activities Association Silver Division and claim its first district championship since winning back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.

“With a lot of hard work and determination we could get there, and I think we have that same enthusiasm right now going into week one,” Morley Stanwood coach Clark Huntey said. “We did not play very good last year week one. So our motivation is getting ready for week one, full guns rather than waiting for week three or week four like we did last year.”

The Mohawks open their season at Stanton Central Montcalm on Aug. 27, before returning home to host Kingsley on Sept. 3.
