Chat with Coach

NVL Blog: Three players saw time at quarterback for you last season. How has your quarterback situation progressed during the preseason, and what can we expect from that position this year?

Coach Jurewicz: “Myles Goulbourne will be running the quarterback spot for us this season. He played quarterback for one game last season, in our season closer against Kennedy. His work ethic in the offseason has been tremendous. His 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame will provide great advantages in our passing game. He spent a great deal of time in the offseason running drills that have made his feet, speed and agility quicker. We expect Myles to be a threat on the ground as well as in the air.”

NVL Blog: There are always quality athletes in the Crosby football program, so how do you plan to put some of these athletes in the positions to best help your team?

Coach Jurewicz: “We plan to feed our studs. Our athletes have different traits that make them successful in different aspects of the game. It will be our job as coaches to put them in those situations that will make them successful in games.”

NVL Blog: What do you think will be the strength of your team that will help it compete against a deep NVL Brass Division?

Coach Jurewicz: “We have had a tremendous increase in overall strength among our team over the last year. We feel this will put us in a position to have success on the ground. Our numbers have been outstanding allowing us to give rest to our ironman players. Staying healthy is a priority.”

The Bulldogs begin the season Sept. 13 at home against Naugatuck.
