  • Preview for Cuthbertson Varsity Football 2021

    A change of mindset has been found amongst the Cuthbertson Varsity Football team in 2021. Second-year head coach Trey Kavanaugh has implemented a new playstyle, new identity, and new goals this season that will ultimately lead to one thing: winning. Building a successful program starts in the offseason. However, due to COVID restrictions, offseason preparation was a challenge. “When I first heard about the offseason being postponed, I was super bummed, but I knew it meant I just had to work even harder. The best players grind when there’s no one watching. I kept this as motivation and really brought it to my teammates’ attention as well,” said team co-captain Carson Torsza (SR).
