Coach's comment: "We are looking forward to a productive winning season as we look to our seniors for their continued leadership and mentoring to our younger classmen.

Our defensive maturity, combined with our offensive creativity, will provide us with the opportunity to be a contender for the league title."

2012 record: 8-10-1 overall, fourth in the NBC.
Returning letter winners: Seniors Jeremy Likes, Vince Askins and Danny Patel; and sophomores Damon Plummer and Cody Sutter.
Coach's comment: "We have a young team looking to build from last season. They will have to pick up the new system we are running this year and avoid injuries to have a successful season."

Returning letter winners: Seniors Diego Martinez, Josh Tremonti, Max Miller, Alex Ayala, Austin Thomas and Jacob Miller; and juniors Josh Horseman and Andrew Michaelis.
Coach's comment: "We lost some valuable players to graduation, so quite a few returning players will play in new positions from last year. The key to our success will be how fast we can come together as a unit and accept our roles and responsibilities on the team."

Coach's comment: "We have a mix of veteran and new players. Our team goal will be to win the NBC and make a strong playoff run in the state tournament. We have also been working on expanding our youth programs and we will have our first junior high season this fall. My goal and vision is to put Rossford soccer on the map as a consistent contender in the NBC and state tournament. The key to our success will be to play an attacking and indirect style of soccer with possession of the ball as our primary focus. We have enough experienced players to be a serious threat to the NBC title and I am excited about the opportunities and challenges of this upcoming season."
