Garrettsville Garfield G-Males Excessive Faculty Soccer Preview 2021
GARRETTSVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) – The G-Men are starting MVAC’s first year this season after leaving the Portage Trail Conference.
Coach Mike Moser knows that it will be a challenge: “We are happy to be playing against so many quality teams in this league. We know we have to do our best week after week. Some are known to us. Crestview, LaBrae, Brookfield – to name a few – are very good programs. We expect to work hard and compete. “
Since Moser took the lead as head coach at Garfield, the G-Men have set records without a loss in six of the last 8 seasons. In her last two, Garfield has set an 18-3 mark.
Last year the G-Men defeated Warren JFK (27-21) and Mogadore (28-21) in consecutive weeks. Garfield finished 6-1 against teams that finished with a winning record. Crestview upset the undefeated Garfield in the postseason.
The G-Men are expected to return 20 letter winners from last year’s 9-1 team.

“We are giving back a lot of weapons on the offensive,” suggests Moser. “We have a lot of guys who are able to do some things with the ball in hand. We really like our depth in running back with Anthony Demma, Ryan Stoller, Jesse Grace and Keegan Sell. Brody Swigonski is a proven quarterback winner. They focus on having a great off-season and getting better. “
Demma averaged 7.7 yards (1309 yards) at 169 rushs a year ago. He also led the team with 21 receptions (327 yards). Number 25 scored 16 offensive touchdowns (13 rushing, 3 receiving).

“We’re led by three great linemen – Riley LaPorte, Austin Roman, and Payton Yancey,” says Moser. “The competition in the other places should create an interesting camp in which players like Noah Eggert, John Hundza, Lenny Veccia, Fred Rutherford, Austin Zarrelli, John Wiczen and Bryce Peska all familiarize themselves.”
