With 13 football players graduating this year, next year’s seniors will have a bigger role than ever before to try and lead a fully new defense and offense in hopes of making it to region playoffs for the third year straight.

“Losing 13 seniors is always something that isn’t easy to handle or adapt to but we have a talented group of guys regardless and I have confidence we will have the ability to make it far in the season again,” junior Emil Infante said.

However, not all team leaders will always be seniors. For example, sophomore starting quarterback Andre Bailey led the offense during this year’s season and hopes to give the team a great offense next year, he said.

“We may have lost a lot of weapons on offense but new players come every year so we have no way of telling how our offense will look,” Bailey said. “What we do know is that we are confident in the guys we have now.”

Junior Matteo Blanzouli, an upcoming senior leader on the defensive side of the ball, said he plans to keep our defense in check as it has always been.

“Good defense wins championships, with lots of the starters on defense this year being seniors, certain players are going to have to step up to the plate to continue the solid defense we have had the past two years,” Blanzouli said.

Although the Falcons are losing 13 important seniors this year, PTS is not the only school to lose important pieces: Rival schools such as Ransom Everglades and Archbishop Carroll are both losing 10 or more senior players.
