Though the Pella Christian football team has to significantly reload at several key positions this season, they do have the benefit of a number of experienced players on the offensive and defensive lines.

Eagles’ Head Coach Rich Kacmarynski says they have a number of seniors with significant experience, as well as good size and strength across both sides of the line.

“We’re going to be a little bigger and stronger on the line of scrimmage than we have been, which I’m excited about,” said Kacmarynski. “I think we’re looking to be a little more physical in the run game. We’ve done some things there and tweaked a few things.”

He adds that provided his linemen stay healthy, the Eagles should be in position to contend for another District title this season. Pella Christian starts the football season on the road at Des Moines Christian this Friday.
