Triad wants to keep its offense firing against Jets

With a high-powered offense, Triad’s football team has been dangerous every time it holds the ball this fall.

The Cardinals are not looking to slow down when they travel to Northeastern on Friday for Ohio Heritage Conference action.

Triad is averaging nearly 50 points per contest and as the Cardinals work through their league schedule they want to continue to find ways to score.

“We try to get the football into the hands of our playmakers in space,” said Triad head coach Payton Printz. “By doing this it allows our athletes the opportunity to gain more yards and find the end zone more often. So far, our two quarterbacks Trent McIntyre and Colton Young have done a great job of spreading the ball around to all of our athletes.”

The Cardinals (3-1, 1-0) handled Springfield Catholic Central 55-12 a week ago, but the Jets (1-3, 1-0) possess a different type of squad.

“Northeastern is a very big and physical football team, both offensively and defensively,” said Printz. “They have had a difficult time this season of hanging onto the football. They turned it over 10 times in their game vs. Dixie, but going into week 5 we expect them to be more sound offensively.”
