Multiple Teams · Football Preview


The 2014 season is about to get underway, and the Trojans are facing an almost completely new schedule.  Under the leadership of Coach Will Ragle, players put in a lot of off-season work in order to prepare for the season.  The team participated in 7-on-7 drills, help team camp, and competed in their first weightlifting challenge at New Palestine.  New Castle graduated only eight players from the 2013 squad, leaving a bunch of hungry underclassmen ready to establish a winning tradition at New Castle High School.

The season unofficially begins tomorrow (August 15th) with a scrimmage against Monroe Central (Huffman Field, 6:00 PM).  This will give the Trojans an opportunity to see how they fair in live game situations in preparation for next Friday’s regular season opener at Franklin County.  The Wildcats are one of seven new opponents on New Castle’s schedule.  New Castle will host Rushville on August 29th for its home opener, looking to avenge a 4th and goal stop that gave the Lions the victory in 2013.  The Golden Trojan Booster Club will be sponsoring their annual tailgate party for this game, providing complimentary hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and dessert to all Trojan fans.

New Castle is officially a member of the Hoosier Heritage Conference this year, which has brought a complete overhaul to the schedule:
