The Spartans didn't lose a game last year until the 1A quarterfinals, when eventual 1A runner-up Raceland took them down in a 42-27 defeat on the road. Coach Pennington's progeny, Luke, will return for his senior year after piling up 2555 yards and 50 touchdowns through the air last year. The offense returns top receiver Brock Coffman, who had nearly 1200 yards and 24 touchdowns receiving last year, as well as Charlie Slabaugh, who was the #2 receiver and #2 rusher with 632 yards on catches, 506 running the ball, and 18 total touchdowns (including 1 on a kickoff return). The Spartan defense was also led by Slabaugh, who had 24 solo tackles and 57 assisted tackles from safety, and cornerback Kemonte Braxton was their next leading tackler, with 24 solo tackles and 11 assisted tackles. Braxton will be back as a senior.

Sleeper team in 1A. There is another chance for a big run! This program continues to grow under great leadership! 

Hard to call Sayre a sleeper team when they will be ranked top 5 by everyone, likely #2 by many. Everyone expects a great season.

There were a lot of people on this site that were surprised to see them still playing as late as they were last season. I am sure some may still feel the same due to the schedule.

You could be right. Sayre is certainly not a traditional name. And they were a sleeper team last year, no doubt about that.

The Spartans have a quarterback and skill people. The line of scrimmage and run defense will dictate how this season plays out. If they can at least hold their own in those areas, they'll have a good look at Kroger Field.

Those are the two things that have stop Sayre from taking that next step. We’ve seen it since coming into Varsity play with Hazard, Pikeville, and Raceland pounding them with the run. Last years offense was championship caliber but defense wins championships and offense sells tickets.
