The Ypsilanti Phoenix football team is looking forward to starting the new season with joining the Southeastern Conference and fellow county area high schools.

“We are excited for old rivalries and want to start some new ones,” Head Coach Dave Poole said. “It will be a tough league but we will compete.”

Previously in the Mega Conference, Ypsilanti will join fellow city school Lincoln and county schools Ann Arbor Pioneer, Ann Arbor Huron, Chelsea, Dexter and Saline in the SEC.

Despite number of players being down this season, Coach Poole feels his team can compete with the quality of his roster. “We have good athletes and solid players, the kids have been worked pretty hard.”

Senior captain Terrance Moore will lead the Phoenix offense a three year varsity player who is very athletic and will look to attack the blitz this year.

Fellow senior captains Cortez Calhoun and Josh Whitfield will anchor the defense.

Coach Poole feels that the team will need these three players to be leaders on and off the field.

“We will need those three to take us where we want to go this season,” Poole said. They are captains for a reason.”

Ypsilanti will need hard work and discipline to achieve its goals of playoffs and beyond. Poole knows it will take not only physical but mental discipline to get there.

“If we miss out assignments we are going to look like we have pie in our face,” he said. “I always tell the kids, do what we have to do now so we can do what we want to do later.”

Ypsilanti opens the season this Friday in Milan at 7 p.m., the home opener is September 4, against Robichaud at 7 p.m.
