(Listed in alphabetical order)

Coach: David Fulcher
2013 record: 6-4
Division: VII
Key players: Sr. WR Logan Katsetos; Sr. QB
Spencer Fox; Sr. RB/DB Kameron Antwine;
Sr. Joey Carroll
Outlook: If we play up to our capabilities
we should be a playoff team, and that is our
goal, Fulcher said.
Cincinnati Country Day
Coach: Tim Dunn
2013 record: 10-1
Division: VI
Key players: Sr. QB Cam Alldred; Sr. C Will

Cheek; Sr. DB Wyatt Fletcher; Jr. RB Darryn
Jordan; Jr. DB Nick Sam; Jr. DE Shuyler Snell;
Jr. G Will Brady; Jr. OL Rodney Bethea; Jr. NT
Marius Lancaster; Jr. K Sean OBrien
Outlook: Coming off a 10-0 regular season
in 2013, Cincinnati Country Day looks to
match the regular season success and make
a longer run in the 2014 playoffs. Jordan is
being recruited by several Division I schools
and will be a key on offense, while Moreno-
Cheek looks to control the trenches on the
offensive and defensive lines. Dunn hopes
to improve the special teams and pass de-
fense and has set a goal of winning the
MVC.
Clark Montessori
Coach: Joe Berta
2013 record: 6-4
Division: V
Key players: Jr. DB Juwuan Tye; Jr. DB Mark
Secen; Sr. DB Alex Lopez; Sr. LB Xavier Fer-
guson; Jr. LB Micah Blythe; Jr. DE Charles Be-
hanan; Sr. DT Raheem Dotson; So. LB Jack-
son Murphy; So. WR Timone Andrew
Outlook: Clark is coming off the best year
in program history and returns starters at
16 positions. Berta is confident this year
could be better than last. We are planning
on breaking the school record for wins and
making our first appearance in the play-
offs, he said. We have worked hard all
offseason and have a realistic goal of seven
or more wins. We have to become a more
balanced offensive attack as we were too
run-oriented last season. We are looking to
maintain balance with our speed and ath-
leticism and expect our defense to be a top-
three defense in the league this year.
Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy
Coach: Eric Taylor
2013 record: 11-1
Division: V
Key players: Sr. Jacob Halter; Sr. Jonah
James; Sr. Bobby Mumma; Sr. Cam Murray;
Jr. Prince Sammons
Outlook: CHCA is coming off four consec-
utive playoff appearances under Taylor,
but advancing in the postseason is the goal
this year after early exits the past few years.
The defense will be led by Sammons. The
junior has received multiple Division I of-
fers and will be the key to this years success.
Dayton Christian
Coach: Ken Moyer
2013 record: 1-9
Division: VI
Key players: Sr. OL/DL Tony Dingess; Sr. OL/
DL Andrew Zimmer; Sr. OL/LB Austin Wil-
liamson; Sr. FB/SS Bradley Morris; Jr. RB/LB
Evin Butler
Outlook: According to Moyer, I am look-
ing forward to a great season. The men
have been working hard to prepare for the
upcoming season, and they have put them-
selves in a very good position to do well.
We are working towards winning champi-
onships, and building champions.
Lockland
Coach: Adam Raby (first year)
2013 record: 2-8
Division: VII
Key players: Trey Playforth, Devin Coulter,
Gerry Myles, Jacob Cromer, Solomon
Roundtree.
Outlook: I believe we have the talent to
be really good this year, as long as we can
develop those important traits of charac-
ter, discipline, and attitude, Raby said. Ra-
by said a turnaround from 2-8 to the post-
season isnt out of the question. We really
believe we have the talent to be a playoff
football team this year. We will have to
work our butts off to get it done, but that is
something we are striving for this year.
New Miami
Coach: John Singleton
2013 record: 1-9
Division: VII
Key players: Sr. RB Blake Hensley; Sr. FB Jim-

owa Whaley, WR-LB Kris Banks, RB-DB Ben-
nie Lovette, OL Justin Graver, OL Maron
Miller, So. QB Franklin Steward, DE-TE AJ
Hammonds.
Outlook: Baarendse hopes several young
players are able to contribute this year,
with only eight seniors on the roster.
Several sophomores will have to step up
and play key roles, he said. Sophomore
Steward will step into the quarterback role
after starting the final four games last sea-
son as a freshman. On defense, Kiowa
Whaley and Kris Banks finished first and
second, respectively, in tackles last season.
St. Bernard-Elmwood Place
Coach: Jim Macke
2013 record: 5-5
Division: VI
Key players: Sr. OT/DT Ricky Recker; Sr. DE
Ronnie Jones; Sr. TE/LB Kevin Fetters; Sr. RB/
LB Teonte Wilson; Sr. TE/LB Shoalin Beasly;
Jr. OT/DE Jomauri Odom; Sr. QB Brendan
Carter; Jr. RB Ryan Johnson; Jr. WR Stephen
Lowery; So. RB/LB Demarco Carter; Jr. K
Robbie Phillips
Outlook: Seniors Recker and Jones, both
being recruited by Eastern Kentucky, will
look to lead the team this season. After go-
ing winless in 2011 and 2012, St. Bernard
won five games last year and will look to
build on that momentum. Macke is hoping
for playoff berth this year. We have a sen-
ior-driven team and that is the expectation
they set for themselves, he said.
Summit Country Day
Coach: Mike Brown
2013 record: 9-3
Division: VI
Key players: Sr. RB/LB Brooks Taylor; Sr. WR/
DB CJ Suggs; Sr. OL/DL Max McGrath; Sr. OL/
DL Kevin Kroencke; Sr. WR/DB Tyler Han-
nah; Sr. TE Cole Bush; Sr. LB Maverick Thur-
ston; Jr. OL/DL Davionne Laney
Outlook: Coming off a 9-3 record, includ-
ing a playoff victory for the second consec-
utive season, Summit will have to replace
several offensive weapons. Brown hopes
the team will be consistent to allow them
to compete for the MVC title. As a smaller
school, offensive and defensive philoso-
phies are going to change year to year to
match personnel, but if youre able to play
with consistency good things will happen,
he said.
MIAMI VALLEY
CONFERENCE
By Kyle Redmond

Before David Fulcher took over as
head coach at Cincinnati Christian in
2011, the school had combined for five
wins. Last season, Fulcher led the
Cougars to program-best a 6-4 record,
and narrowly missed the schools first
postseason appearance.
Fulcher, a former Cincinnati Ben-
gal from 1986-1992 and a three-time
Pro Bowl selection, has
lifted Cincinnati Chris-
tian to a higher level of
play in his first three
years.
Coaching was not
always the goal for
Fulcher.
During my playing
days I never thought
about coaching, but that changed
when Cincinnati Christian had me
come speak to their team in 2011,
Fulcher said. Coach Lee Johnson
decided to leave coaching and start a
family, so the school offered me the
job and I decided I had to do it, and
now I absolutely love it.
One of the obstacles Fulcher and
the Cougars face is the 23-man roster.
That is up from 22 players last year,
and obviously requires most players to
play on both sides of the ball.
The fact we have 23 guys, means
the main goal for us is to stay healthy,
we can not afford any serious inju-
ries, he said.
This years team will be led by four
seniors: Joey Carroll, Spencer Fox,
Kameron Antwine and Logan Kat-
setos.
Fulcher said they lost several key
players from defense last year, and
will count on the returning juniors and
seniors to fill those holes.
Regarding this seasons goals,
Fulcher said the second game of the
year will determine how far the team
goes.
Week two at Cedarville will be
huge for us, its a redemption game
from last year, he said.
Cedarville knocked off Cincinnati
Christian last year, allowing them to
finish 7-3 and take the last playoff spot
from the Cougars.
A game like this would help us get
some computer points and increase
our postseason chances by the end of
the season as long as we stay healthy
and play consistently, he said.
As a Division VII team playing up
against some Division V and VI teams,
Cincinnati Christian will have a tough
road in 2014, but Fulcher has high
hopes for his Cougar football team.
If we play up to our capabilities
we should be a playoff team, and that
is our goal, Fulcher said. m
Wide receiver Logan Katsetos, left, and quarterback Spencer Fox are two of four seniors coach David Fulcher hopes will lead
Cincinnati Christian to its first postseason appearance this season. TONY TRIBBLE FOR THE ENQUIRER
