2022 Recap

The 2022 season for the Midland Trail Patriots was filled with ups and downs, ultimately resulting in a 6-4 record that left them just shy of the playoffs. Despite the disappointment of missing the postseason, the Patriots showcased their resilience and determination throughout the season, providing fans with exciting moments and close contests.

The Patriots’ offense was a consistent force on the field, averaging 24 points per game. The Patriots began the season strongly, starting with a 5-2 record that gave them a legitimate shot at making the playoffs. Their early success was built on their ability to execute their game plan effectively. Standout performances against Summers County and Liberty Raleigh served as highlights of the season. The nail-biting 13-12 victory over Summers County showcased the team’s resilience, while the impressive win against Liberty Raleigh demonstrated their ability to dominate their opponents.

However, as the season progressed, the Patriots faced tough challenges against formidable teams. Despite their best efforts, they suffered two crucial defeats in their last three games, which ultimately prevented them from securing a playoff berth. A close-fought loss to Greenbrier West late in the year was particularly heartbreaking, as it came down to the wire and could have gone either way.

The 2022 Midland Trail Patriots season may not have ended as they hoped, but it was filled with memorable moments and valiant efforts. The team’s ability to start strongly and compete against tough opponents demonstrated their talent and resilience. Although they fell short of their playoff dreams, their determination and commitment to the game provide optimism for a bright future ahead.


2023 Outlook

As the 2023 high school football season approaches, all eyes are on the Midland Trail Patriots, led by second-year head coach Jeremy Moore. With high optimism surrounding the team, the Patriots are poised for a successful campaign, backed by a strong senior group and a talented pool of underclassmen.

One of the key figures on the Midland Trail roster is quarterback Jaden Gladwell. The talented signal-caller has shown great poise and leadership skills, making him a vital component of the team’s offense. Supported by a talented receiving corps, led by wide receiver Landon Syner, the Patriots’ passing game is expected to pose a significant threat to opposing defenses. Syner’s speed and ability to make big plays make him a go-to target for Gladwell.

In addition to their passing prowess, Midland Trail boasts explosive players on the offensive side of the ball. Running backs Jaden Roop and Will McGraw possess exceptional speed and agility, enabling them to break free for long gains and electrifying touchdowns. Wide receiver Ian Harper complements the running game with his ability to create separation and make clutch receptions when needed.

While the Patriots are confident in their abilities, their path to victory won’t come easily. The addition of Wheeling Central to their schedule adds another formidable opponent to an already challenging lineup. The Patriots recognize that facing such tough competition will push them to their limits and ultimately make them stronger as they march toward the playoffs.

Behind the scenes, offensive lineman John Bowman will be a key figure in anchoring the Patriots’ offensive line. Bowman’s strength and tenacity provide a solid foundation for the team’s offense, allowing their skilled playmakers to shine.

As the anticipation builds and the season opener draws near, Midland Trail fans have reason to be excited about the potential of their team. With a talented roster, exceptional coaching, and a desire to overcome any obstacles in their path, the Patriots are determined to make their mark on the field in 2023.

In the end, it’s the combination of experience, skill, and perseverance that will determine the Patriots’ success. The 2023 season promises to be an exciting one for Midland Trail fans as they witness their team battle through a challenging schedule in pursuit of glory on the gridiron.
