Countdown to Kickoff: Marathon Raiders


We continue our Countdown to Kickoff, checking in with the Marathon Raiders.

For the first time in 20 years, Marathon won the Marawood Conference title in 2013, which the Raiders had to share with Stratford and Edgar.

1,200 plus yard rusher Ethan Seubert returns in the Raiders backfield, along with Andre Carriveau, who led the team in tackles last season.

Head coach Todd Stoffel says his team understands that because of last year's success, the Raiders now have a target on their back.

"They know no one's gonna take them lightly so there's no sneaking up on anyone now and we understand that," said Stoffel. Based on the work I've seen so far in the summer and the first few days of practice, I think they're fine with that.

"We all have the mindset that we have to go out and meet those high standards again and maintain what we've accomplished so far," said Carriveau. "I think everybody's willing to put in the effort."
