Windham Bombers Excessive Faculty Soccer Preview 2021
WINDHAM, Ohio (WKBN) – Three years ago, the Bombers closed the 2018 season on a 9-2 mark and had put together 31 wins in 4 years (2015-18). Windham’s last two campaigns resulted in an overall record of 4-12.
This year, Windham returns 13 letter winners, including a trio of all-league first-team selections in Mikylen Jones, Camdyn Hoskins and Chase Eye.
Coach Jake Eye is starting his third off-season as the Bombers’ head coach since he was appointed to the position in mid-2018. “One area that worries us will be our lack of depth. Even though the numbers are better, we’ll still only have a squad of around 25. We have high expectations as we will rely on our upper class to guide us. “
Windham welcomes Lisbon in week one on Friday 20th August.
