It may be cliche, but Douglas County is a team reloads rather than rebuilds. Much of this is due to the hard work done in the Douglas County offseason.

Under the tenure of head coach Jeff Ketron the Douglas County Huskies have become one of the most consistent powers in Colorado 5A football.  Douglas County’s trade mark toughness has made them a difficult out come playoffs.  This season should not be an exception as the Huskies look to retool and make a run.

While speaking with Coach Ketron and big offensive lineman Mike Moudy, both mentioned the hard work being done in the Douglas County weightroom.  Moudy, a testament to the Husky weight program, has gone from a skinny tight end to a 6-7 290 pound Nebraska bound offensive tackle.

Ketron cites a deep program with 200 total kids involved, 125 of which are playing at the JV and varsity level.  Ketron goes on to mention that he sees the offensive and defensive lines as the strength of the team.  Moudy will anchor the offensive line, while on the defensive line a player to watch is defensive end Zach Beach.  Supporting Beach in the defensive front seven are linebackers Matt Hahn and Casey Joy both of whom gained All-League Honorable Mention Honors last year.

On offense, Douglas County will have to find a way to replace All-State running back Jose Astorga.  Over the past three seasons, Astorga was Douglas County’s big play back, making the offense very potent.  This offseason, QB Jeremy Belk has worked hard to position himself as the new offensive leader.  Working behind Moudy and what is always a solid offensive line, Belk and the other skill players should have time to hit their stride.

Coach Ketron feels his kids are, “a little hungrier this year” and will “run and lift like crazed dogs.”  If that is the case, watch out, these Huskies may bite by season kickoff.
