The Tensas Academy Chiefs will look to return to championship form when head coach Joe Coats leads his team onto the field in the fall.
The Chiefs lost in the championship game to Calvary Christian 72-42 last season after falling to Calvary in the championship game two years ago.
"We'd like to take another shot," said Tensas head coach Joe Coats.
To do that, the Chiefs will be relying on a young team without a senior.
"We've got a lot of guys in new positions," Coats said. "We just want to improve each week and hopefully get better and be a decent team by the end of the year."
The Chiefs have made a couple of changes on offense by moving juniors David Leake (6-1, 165)to quarterback, Josh Sikes (5-10, 190)to running back, and Farrel Keahey (6-2. 180)to tight end.
Tensas Academy's expected starting backfield will have Leake at quarter back, along with Sikes and junior Ryan Nueroth (5-8, 170) at running back.
The Chiefs upfront are expected to be junior Dalton Corbett (5-10, 170) at the center position, joined by sophomore Jake Emfinger (6-2, 180) and junior Dylan Hopkins (5-10, 175) at the guard positions.
The Chiefs starting receiving core consist of junior wide out Andy Hazel (5-7, 140) and tight end Keahey.
Eighth grader Walker Gregory is expected to see some playing time at running back as well.
On the defensive side, Coach Coats will be relying on his defensive lineman in junior Alphonse CoCo (6-1, 180), Emfinger and junior Rush Capdepon (6-3, 225).
Starting at linebacker will be Sikes and Hopkins, while Hazel and Leake will fill the Chiefs secondary.
Eighth grader Peyton Jones and junior J.R. Micheal are expected to see playing time on the defensive line as well.
Tensas Academy opened its season with a 44-6 win over defending 8-man state champion Calvary.
Tensas returns home Friday to face Franklin.
After the Chiefs make their first road trip of the season to face Central, the Chief's will return home for the three straight home games. The Chiefs will face Hot Springs, followed by Kemper, followed by their Homecoming game against Mt. Salus.
The Chiefs will then travel the next two weeks to Franklin and Briarfield.
The Chiefs will return home October 15 when they take on Collegiate.
Then the Chiefs will travel to Park Place, and finally return back home for their last game of the regular season against Rebul.
"Everybody just about has a new team," Coats said. "Kemper has 12 seniors so they should be strong."
