DANVILLE — The Danville Vikings are 1-0 to start the season for the first time since 2011. That’s also the last year the program posted a winning record at the end of the season, going 10-2 with a trip to the quarterfinals.
This year’s team has high hopes of reaching the playoffs and they’ll lean on their offensive line to get them there. The average weight of each lineman is a little less than 300 pounds. Aside from the shear size of the line, the group has familiarity. Most of them have started together since their sophomore seasons.
The Vikings will lean on their line against the Maroons, a team that beat them 27-20 last season. Central relies heavily on its running game, something Danville is certainly aware of.
