2015 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
After coming off one of MNHS Football most successful seasons (9-3)and our 1st playoff win in school history, we are in the rebuilding stage. We lost in the district semifinals 28-20 to Upper Moreland. This being our 3rd year with the current coaching staff we feel we have our younger guys ready to step up.
We lost 18 of 22 starters from the FIRST Playoff win in school history. We need kids to step up and take the next step. The coaches and kids have worked hard. The administration and community support is great!
