 In high school football, St Johns has been a model of consistency, pumping out ten straight years of winning football. Last year the team went 8-4.

Numbers are down for the Redwings this season as head coach Dave Mariage said the varsity roster is as small as it's been since he's been head coach at the school.

Still, he's thrilled with his players how his players have approached preseason camp.

"These guys... I've just been very pleased by their work ethic," Mariage said. "We really have had some guys work. I mean, they hit things harder in terms of training as a group -- you know, the majority of them really don't have to be talked into hard work so that's pretty neat."
