Football Season Ends with Hope for Next Year

Sunday, November 05, 2006
The 2006 Football season ended uneventfully on Saturday night as the Madison Mavericks dropped to 5-5 on the season with a loss to Roosevelt. The season was over for the football team and for the seniors it was an unexpected end to their final season. But there is a silver lining to the end of the 2006 season, and that is 2007.

Returning next year will be 7 offensive starters, and 8 defensive starters. Most of the skill positions will be back lead by #26 RB Devin Thomas. After missing the first game of the 2006 season with an injury, Devin racked up almost 2000 yards and lead the Madison mavericks in several statistical categories including rushing and Touch downs.

Also returning will be several players with QB experience including #4 Bryan Ehrlich. Almost all of the Madison WR will return including the electric Josh Miles and Chris Powel. Madison will have to fill some big shoes on the offence line but returning lettermen Josh Corby will anchor a young line next year.

On The defensive side of the ball Madison will have a stable of experience coming back. Defensive Ends Eddie Pitts and Michael Williams will both be back, but Madison will have to fill a void at Defense Tackle. All three Linebackers will return in McClean, Lawson and Flores. In the defensive backfield Madison will have to find a replacement at One Cornerback position but will retain the services of Chris Lambeth, Sophomore Andrew Green, and Mario Wiggins.

Madison 2007 season will be tough early as it was this year as they will go up against two programs that will be playing in the post season this year in Seguin and O’Connor. The O’Connor game will be the Home opener for the 2007 Madison Mavericks.
