Dover High School
2012 Record: 4-5
Key Returning Impact Players: Brandon Wilson, Michael Hurd, Omar Price, Nick Glover, Tyler Rosello, Nick Spadafino, Tavarus Sample, Raekwon Bouges
Key Newcomers: Tyler Rosello, Devlin Locklin, Dylan Handel
Season Outlook: The Dover Senators had a lackluster season by Dover football standards in 2012, going 4-5. This season, it's a fresh start for Dover as they are now led by new head coach Dante Jones. If the Senators expect to return to the top of the Henlopen Conference this season they will have to do so without some key pieces. Dover lost starting quarterback Ian Gory, running back Donovan Cain, and wide-out Jordon Robinson to graduation, three key-pieces who had been mainstays in the Dover offense. Now, they will lean on returning players Raekwon Bouges and Tavarus Sample, and a strong offensive line made up of Michael Hurd, Nick Glover, Tyler Rosello, Brandon Wilson and Omar Price to help solidify the offense. While there will no doubt be some growing pains for this incarnation of the Dover Senators, they have the talent to compete in the tough Henlopen Conference.
Coach's Quote: "As players and as a coach the goal for each season never changes," said new Dover Head Coach Dante Jones. "We want to make it to the playoffs and win your last game."
