Coach McCormack will be looking to get the Indians over the hump and back to a higher level of competition in the Duneland.Portage begins the season with some new faces in key positions that could impact their success early in the season. Gage Pearmann takes over at QB and he will be relying heavily on versatile playmaker RaShawn Coleman to help move the ball down the field. The defense, as always, will have some speed and the Portage secondary has been consistent the past few seasons in forcing turnovers.
