THORNVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) — 2021 marked the first time since 2017 that the Sheridan Generals did not hold at least a share of the MVL title, finishing with an 8-3 record. Coach Paul Culver III said the team needs to improve on defense.

“I think the biggest thing is getting back to sound, fundamental Red Rage defense. We lost that last year,” Culver said. “We tweak things year to year to get to the specific kids and their skill sets … last year we didn’t tackle very well.”

The biggest change of the year will be the loss of running back Jason Munyan. Without the production of Munyan, Culver is looking to others to step up.

“Our passing game came a long way last year with two young QBs and some young receivers,” Culver said. “They will now be the nucleus that we build our offense around.”

The Right Mental Attitude and the Red Rage was the foundation of what Paul Culver Jr. built his program on. After his passing in late 2021, the Sheridan football team will continue to live by those principals.

“Those are the things my dad preached,” Culver said. “Kind of a ying and yang, that perfect balance. He preached it for 40 years.”

The Generals will open the 2022 season on the road against Licking Valley on August 19th.
