At the helm of the Sterling Rangers is coach Robert Toomer, who was hired in late May a year ago.
Getting a late jump last May, Toomer came out of this spring football period excited about the progress his squad made looking towards the fall.
"I love the fact that we got to slow things down and really teach for the first time," Toomer said. "We weren't in a rush. Last year, the kids were trying to figure us out and we were trying to figure them out.
"This spring we competed in the weight room and on the track. We could see who could really play what positions and got a true evaluation of our program. We could really see our strengths and weaknesses."
