The Estevan Viragos girl's football season begins this weekend and head coach Mark Tribiger is excited about what the new campaign might bring.
Tribiger said last year was a building year for his team.
"Last year we were a super, super young team, and we're coming into the season looking pretty good," he said. "We came off a lot of good stuff from our spring season and we should show some people in the league what Estevan Viragos football is all about."
Tribiger said the defensive side of the ball will be a point of emphasis heading into the year.
"We've revamped our defense a little bit and we're going to be keying in on the outside sweeps...that's where we got beat really bad last year, was as soon as they got to the outside, so we've slowed that down," he said. "And then on offence, we've picked up some pretty good receivers and running backs that have come out to try the sport and we've got some speed back there."
There's also a couple players that could have breakout seasons, Tribiger said.
"Our centre Maria Baniulis, she's looking really good. I think she's talking about going up to the (Regina) Riot after her Grade 12 season here," he said. "And at quarterback -she's still young, she's in Grade 9 - but Sarah Greening, she's looking really good. We'll be working with her, and by the time she's in Grade 12, there'll be lots of teams looking at her I can guarantee you that."
This will be the Viragos third season, and second in the Prairie Girls Football League. They'll play four games, with the first one scheduled for Saturday against Yorkton at 6 p.m. at Woodlawn Regional Park. Playoffs will follow the regular season.
Tribiger said they're always looking to add new players and can still add some girls during the season.
