Hatchets prepare for 2013 season

The 2013 edition of the Washington Hatchet football team will face the challenge of low numbers going into the new season on Friday against Boonville, but hopefully, the experience they do have returning will help balance the lack of depth on a team of roughly 30 players.

“We have 32 on the roster, but several are ineligible for differing reasons or injured, and we will probably only have about 26-28 available for the Boonville game,” said coach Kelly Brashear. “I love the kids that we have, I just wish we had a lot more of them.”

Last season, the Hatchets had wins over Evansville Bosse, North Daviess, North Knox and Pike Central and moved on to the second round of the sectional before losing to Evansville Memorial. This year, Washington is on the road in its opening two weeks, facing Boonville and then Bosse.

Brashear, now in his 10th season, brings a 47-52 career record and new offense to start the new year. Brasher will utilize the pistol and read option as the primary offense for three-year starting QB Jake Brashear.

Brashear believes that his nephew Jake, will be one of the most athletic elements on the team and wants to give him a chance to use his speed and strength to its full advantage. Other weapons in the backfield will be a pair of seniors in Jaden Arvin, who will work out of a speed position and fullback Edrwin Revolorio.

Out of the pistol, there will also be several backs playing out of a wing position and split ends. Freshman Austin Moody, junior Jansen Shake and seniors Tyler Summers, Dalton Devine and Clayton Johnston will all be looked at to catch the ball from those spots, while sophomore Cameron Meade will see time at tight end, as will freshman Max Lancaster, who will also backup the quarterback and fullback.
