Whitesboro Warriors Prepare to Take on Greece Athena for Class A Title

WHITESBORO NY - The Whitesboro Warriors have knocked off each opponent this year as if it was child's play, bringing them to their current 11-0 record and a fight for the Class A title. 

If you looked anywhere else in Section 3 you'd find an empty football field, but not in Whitesboro. They're now just two wins away from a state title. Thankfully, the Warriors have long time Coach Tom Schoen to keep them grounded.

"The goal is not a state championship, we're not talking about that. the goal right now is to do well against Greece Athena. We've got them thinking in one week seasons so we're going to keep that up." Schoen said.

If they want to move onto Week 12  they'll have to stop duel threat quarterback Ta'von Granison and if you're looking for a comparison, think your College Heisman front runner.

"They're very very athletic, very quick. The quarterback is a Louisville type quarterback. He makes things happen with his legs and his arms." Schoen said.

For a more blunt assessment look no further than defensive back Pat Galer, who has the unattractive task of stopping the Trojans offense.

 "I mean really stop the quarterback, he's a stud so." Galer said.

That may be the case, but at 11-0 so are the warriors. and as senior Mike Cirasuolo will tell you, this brand of brothers isn't ready to disperse just yet.

"The captains always talk to each other and say this could be the last time together. Do you want to end like this? uh because we're a family you know? we hang out after practice. We hang out on the weekends, and we bond. So we don't want that to be our last time together."  Cirasuolo said.

Kick off is Friday at CNS.
