The Mt. Markham Mustangs are coming off a solid 4-4 season. With hard work, they're looking to make it farther than the first round of the playoffs.

The Mustangs have a great mix of returners and newcomers on the roster.

Tight end Mackenzie Case is back. The 6'2" senior makes a great target for first year starting quarterback Eddie King who replaces Nick Mondore under center.

There's usually a Linen-Holmes in the back field, this year is no different as Alphonso looks to continue his success as a running back.

This group says they're clicking on all cylinders.

"I think you just gotta look at your roster and make sure you play to the strengths of your players," said Mustangs head coach Loren Winegard. "Find out what they're good at and ask them to do that, not something else. We do a good job of assessing them and try to get them in positions to be successful.

The Mustangs open up their season with a good test on the road against Little Falls in a non-league contest on Saturday, September 7.
