Today the USO football team will be starting conditioning just a short two months with the season ending state playoff overtime loss to the State College Little Lions. The Eagles/Panthers are hoping to skyrocket their football program by starting now rather than the city league standard of the midsummer starts. This offseason training is optional, of course.

The team’s 2nd year coach Lou Berry is planning to win another city league championship, and “defend our title.” With the loss of almost the whole starting varsity line-up, it will be a drastically young team trying to live up to the expectations of the past seasons stars.

“I will be depending on athletes like Myles Catlin, Akil Young , Nick Stallworth”, and other young upcoming athletes CoachBerrysaid. “But I think the leadership we have coming back this year will have us in the position where we can win back to back.” He said after being asked about this year’s leaders.

The coach and other supporters believe that incorporating an off season program, speed training, ice-breaker activities, and simple things like 7 on 7 games will take the USO team to another City League championship, and beyond.

However, before the team gets to defend their title they will have to face the tough competitors of the 2012 season. It all begins with getting stronger, faster and more agile.
