The West Trojans are coming off a deep playoff run in 2017, and are ready to take the next step.

The team refused to let a thunderstorm stop them from putting in work and getting valuable reps in Friday morning. 

So, they replaced their cleats with tennis shoes, kept their pads on and hit the court. 

Head Coach Davis Woodard said fall camp is focused around working on consistency and cleaning up the little things, and he is looking to senior leadership to keep this team on track, especially since now they know what it'll take to be successful this season.

"It always starts up front with our offensive and defensive lines, and those guys, we've got some guys with some experience and some playoff experience and a couple of them are four-year starters. And so, those guys bring a lot of experience to the table. They're the heart and soul of our team... how they go, we go," Coach Woodard said. 

It was evident Coach's guys agree with him. 

"I think we're the most physical 3A team in the state. I don't think any team can lineup against us and out-muscle us in any way, especially our O and D line. I think  that we have a very strong line, and I don't think anybody can really block them," Trojans senior tailback and linebacker Kain Klish said.

"We can face challenges. If we have a challenge, we ain't just gonna look down like dang, it's over. We're gonna just keep steaming ahead no matter what. Adversity, just flush it away and keep going," Jace Klaus, Trojans center and defensive end, said. 

The Trojans kick off their 2018 season on August 31st on the road against 4A Hillsboro.
