18 Sports begins the 2018 NTL football season previews with the Athens Wildcats.
Athens finished the 2017 season with an 8-2 regular season record, and fell in the District IV Class 4A semi-finals to Shikellamy.
The Wildcats only return six seniors to the roster. Head Coach Jack Young tells 18 Sports that those six seniors are going to have to become tremendous leaders for a relatively young team, but the younger players have been putting in hard work this summer to help them hit the ground running this season.
Athens opens up the season on August 24th as they host Hanover.
Stay tuned to 18 Sports in the coming days for more NTL football team previews.
