The Kenmore Cardinals are one of the early season surprises on the gridiron in the City Series.
Kenmore is 2-0 following victories over Normandy and Norton in the last two weeks.
Want to know how Head Coach Ed Peltz and his staff have gotten to 2-0? "We played a lot of young kids last season", said Peltz. "It was the work they put in during the off-season and they did a good job with that, and in the pre-season, they worked hard".
"We emphasized ever since the beginning of off-season workouts of being 1-0. That was our focus", said Peltz.
The Kenmore offense features two tailbacks, juniors Justin Jones and Marcus Lindsey. DeShaun Ballinger is the quarterback. The receiving corps is led by seniors Chris Moore and Ben Gulley. Peltz says the offensive line 'has done a nice job'.
The Kenmore defense has allowed only 6 points this season. The Cardinal defense is led by linebackers Deon'Tae Moore and Steven Vinson.
But, Peltz says "In all honesty, it's been a team effort".
Friday night's game will be an early season test for the Cardinals as they take on the Green Bulldogs on the road. Peltz says "They'll be a tough test for us. We'll have to play it one play at a time".
