When the Post Falls Trojans take the field at 7:00 p.m. Friday against Capital (Boise) – a game broadcast on SWX with anchor Sam Adams at the call – they'll return 12 starters, including Joey Pfennigs, a three-year starter at quarterback. Pfennigs led an underwhelming offense in 2012 that scored more than 20 points just two times, and the team sputtered to a 2-7 overall record.
Capital won seven of 10 games last season, led by the stellar play of quarterback Makena Simis, who has since departed and will play his college ball at the University of Montana. Simis put together one of the best year's ever by an Eagle, and he would have set virtually every passing record if not for former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer's 1992 season.
According to The Spokesman-Review, depth and lack of speed are the Trojans' biggest issues. "This senior group is the best I've had at trying to improve their size, speed and skill, Post Falls head coach Jeff Hinz said.
Post Falls has changed its offensive schemes in hopes of lighting a spark. "The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expect a different result," Hinz said. "We needed to change."
