Genoa Central 23 in 23

August 25, 2017 - The Genoa Central Dragons are coming off of a 4-6 season, but are feeling confident as they head into the new year.

NBC 6's Jori Parys has more on the Dragons.

Jori Parys said, "Coming off a 4-6 season Genoa Central is hungry for a change of pace, and with the optional workouts this summer receiving consistently high attendance numbers, coach Phillip Binkley is confident in his teams' abilities to make goals a reality this season."

Phillip Binkley said, "During the summer it isn't mandatory its one of those deals where they come and try to get better and they believe we preach that and preach that, and the kids believe that so we've had a good turnout all summer average 35-40 guys a day Monday through Thursday."

Parys said, "While the team has been productive in the offseason, they're preparing themselves for another tough year in a competitive 3A division. Instilling the mentality of not taking a day off is a necessity."

Binkley said, "It's just a tough conference all the way around really its not, week to week its nothing not a day off-er that's for sure." 

Parys said, "If losing 16 seniors and a tough division wasn't enough to think about, the defensive side of the ball has had priority for the Dragons with the hiring of new defensive coordinator Richard McMillian, but Coach Binkley and the squad are confident that Genoa Central is going to be able to compete every Friday night."

Binkley said, "One of our biggest things is trying to bring in and establish a new defense, and get the kids to believe in what were doing far as defense. We're competitive now. I feel our kids believe that, and any Friday night we can compete now. So, the confidence is there. It really is. The kids believe in themselves."
