'Hungry' Renton Indians football squad opens season tonight at Renton Memorial Stadium
Led by a couple of All-League players and a new face at quarterback, the Renton Indians football team has high expectations for this season.
With a fourth-place finish and a first-round playoff loss last year, Renton coach Donald Ponds said in an email the goal this season is to make a deeper run into the playoffs. The past two years, Renton High has watched its season end in the round of 32.
“The public needs to know this team is hungry for more, to be better in every aspect of the game and to fulfill the high expectations set for the season,” Ponds said in an email.
Last year, the Indians finished with a 4-6 record and a Seamount League record of 3-3.
In a change this season, DaSaun Sauls, a three-year starter at quarterback, is moving to wide receiver and junior Elijah Clayton, a All-League second-team selection last year, will take over under center.
Other top returners for the Indians include two-time All-League lineman Micah Prescott, All League running back/linebacker Ernie Davis and wide receiver Jouvani Robinson.
The Renton Indians open their season today, Friday against Olympic at Renton Memorial Stadium.
