2023 Outlook


The Capital Cougar football team is determined to bounce back from a challenging year and make their mark in the playoffs once again. Head coach Mark Mason and his players are gearing up for an intense season, working hard to regain their winning form. With a talented roster that includes standout players like offensive lineman Tajai Davis and defensive lineman Tucker Van Meter, the Cougars have the potential to dominate the field. However, they face a demanding schedule right from the start, with matchups against Parkersburg South and Hurricane posing significant challenges.

The success of the Cougars extends beyond one player. Tajai Davis, an imposing force on the offensive line, will play a vital role in providing protection for the quarterback and opening lanes for the running backs. Davis’s strength, technique, and football intelligence make him an anchor of the offensive line, crucial to the team’s offensive success.

Despite the determination of the Capital Cougars, they face a daunting schedule right from the beginning. Opening the season against Parkersburg South and Hurricane, two tough opponents, will undoubtedly test their mettle. These early matchups will set the tone for the team’s resilience and determination as they fight to establish themselves as contenders once again. However, the challenging schedule serves as a motivation for the Cougars to prove their worth and demonstrate their improvement over the past year.
