Manville 2017 Football Preview
The Manville Mustangs have only ever been to the playoffs twice in program history and last season was their second visit. Unfortunately, they lost in the first round. Nonetheless, the Mustangs have high hopes as they stand behind their 15 senior players this year. The pressure is on for Manville to make the playoffs once again and play beyond the first round, which they have never done before. Head Coach, Pat Gorbatuk, says the Mustangs hold a lot of promise this year and will use their small-town attitude as motivation to succeed.
