GOSHEN – Linebacker Matt Mauriello and several of his teammates sported bleached blonde mohawks at practice on Monday.
For that, we give the Gladiators style points. Now, Goshen is hoping it can put more points up on the scoreboard this season than last.
The Gladiators are certainly looking to kick it up a notch in 2014. A year after making the Class A playoffs, Goshen missed the postseason in 2013, winning two games.
Here is what Mauriello and running back/linebacker Louis Mongilia had to say about bleach jobs and the 2014 season:
Goshen will compete in Class A Division I with Port Jervis, Saugerties and New Paltz, up from Class B this year. It could get interesting in the league without a clear favorite (Port Jervis or New Paltz would get the nod at this point). Still, we will learn a lot about Goshen in the first few weeks of the season. The Gladiators have a tough schedule, opening with rival John S. Burke Catholic on Sept. 6.
Goshen follows with Warwick in the Spirit Trophy game and gets a bit of a breather with Monticello in Week 3? As for Week 4? Goshen plays this team you might have heard of: Cornwall. Of course, Goshen isn’t backing down.
