2020 REVIEW

The Oswego Indians are coming off a great year. They went 8-2 overall, 5-0 in the league and 4-1 in the district. Despite dealing with three key players falling to season-ending injuries and a having to rally back from a few slow starts, it was the Indians strongest season under head coach Matt Fowler. “We have a resilient team that can battle through difficult circumstances,” Fowler says. Their record earned them a home playoff game in round one, in which they earned the program’s second playoff win in history. It was a 54-8 victory over Central Burden. “It was fun to see our seniors go through such a turnaround from a 1-8 freshman season in 2017 to be the group to really push us forward into being a competitive team,” Fowler says.

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

The Indians are coming off their best season in a handful of years. Their senior class is small, but between several returners and a lot of freshman interest, Oswego won’t be lacking in available personnel. “Our seniors have been through the ups and downs of high school football and know what it takes to be successful,” Fowler says. “We also have a strong junior class that played key roles last year.” The offensive and defensive lines will see the most change from 2020 to 2021 and filling those holes up front will be important for Oswego as they head into the fall. The Indians pride themselves on playing unselfish football. “Our team isn’t concerned about who is playing what position but are willing to do what will help the team,” Fowler says. However, they must improve on limiting turnovers in order to have continued success.
