It took the Red Raiders awhile to get over the playoff loss to Lansing Catholic last season. It put a damper on a great season for Portland.
But with 10 starters back, 18th year head coach John Novara has experience at quarterback, running back, and defense. The Raider coaches are also very high on the young players on this squad.
A tough schedule awaits with perennial playoff team Ovid-Elsie in Week 1, but the revenge game with Lansing Catholic at home in Week 4 is the one they are really pointing to.
