Lansing Sexton hasn’t made the playoffs or had a winning record since 2017. It's been an up-and-down last two seasons that have found the J-Dubbs under .500 they’re hoping a re-commitment to work heading into the season pays off.

Using last year as a building block the J-Dubbs are looking for more consistency this fall. With plenty of players back if they can put it all together that could lead to more wins.

"Right now their camaraderie, their leadership, their love for each other, the way they push each other. Iron sharpens iron, they understand that moto and they've been working really hard," Lansing Sexton head coach Johnel Davis said.

While the CAAC white gets deeper with the addition of Lakewood and Olivet, the goals for Sexton don’t change. It’s the same year in and year out.

"It's a real big chip because we had a whole bunch of talent, it's just we couldn't really put it all together. This year we are going to work as a team," Sexton wide receiver Devon Hodges-Smith said.

Lansing Sexton takes on cross-town rival Lansing Everett in the first game of the year on Thursday, August 24th.
