OMAHA (KMTV) — Omaha Roncalli hopes to continue its success after making the state semifinals in 2019.
The Crimson Pride have to replace dynamic quarterback Jack Dotzler, who set Class B state records last year for touchdown passes and passing yards.
"The last couple years have been an upclimb and we just want to keep it going," said Roncalli senior quarterback Thomas Kenney. "We're going to work hard just like everyone else would and hopefully it plans out."
"I'm pretty hyped up because it's our chance now," said senior lineman Nolan Gorczyca, who's committed to Buffalo. "It's not the class ahead of us. It's not the class two ahead of us. It's our time now. It's '21's time."
"I think we'll be able to run the ball a little bit better this year," said Roncalli head coach Tom Kassing. "I'm really excited. We're going to do different things cause we have different strengths in our kids."
Roncalli opens with a tough game right out of the gate at home against two-time defending Class B champ Omaha Skutt Catholic on August 28.
