Elton Indians

2017 Record: 7-4

How it Happened: Elton won 1A district 4 with a spread offense that put up 30 or more points in seven of its eleven games last season before losing to Jonesboro-Hodge in the second round of the playoffs.

This season the Indians have a new coach in Donald Bruchhaus and will be switching to a Wing-T. Bruchhaus says the change is due to personnel changes; the Indians lost 10 seniors who started for Elton in 2017 and have just 26 players total on this year’s team.

Senior Gavin Courville will switch from wide receiver to quarterback this season to run the newly installed offense. On defense, the Indians return six starters from a year ago. But with so few players on the roster, Elton will be relying on junior high school recruits to fill in the gaps.
