Gloucester Looks To Future

The Gloucester Dukes don’t have much of a football heritage to look fondly upon. The Dukes were 0-10 last year and haven’t made a playoff appearance since 1986. Former Head Coach Sonny Merchant left the program midseason last fall and is now an assistant coach under Danny Dodson at Woodside. VHSL reclassification might open the door for the Dukes a little bit, but they’re still playing a tough schedule full of Peninsula opponents. The bar for reaching the playoffs is lowered, but can they manage to earn the wins they’ll need to play in the postseason?

Change is a constant in high school football. The Wildcats have a young team once again, but Head Coach Pete Gale is confident that fans won’t see a repeat performance this year. In fact, he’s savoring the opportunity to surprise people.
