SARATOGA SPRINGS — Coach Terry Jones is ready for the Blue Streaks 2017 season.

“Our aspirations are every body’s aspirations. We want to win every game, but we don’t look ahead. We’re going to take every game one at a time because you can’t look ahead because every team can beat you in the Double A’s. I truly believe that. On the other hand, we can beat every team in the Double A’s. It’s a long grinding season so right now we’re focused on Niskayuna and Niskayuna only. That’s our goal, and until that’s over, we don’t worry about anything else,” Coach Jones said.

Wes Eglintine, quarterback, Kevin Toote, two-way starter, Mike Eglintine, tight-end and defensive-end, and Cam Adams, running back are the captains of the team this year.

“These kids are our four captains, our leaders. They’ve all been up since their sophomore year,” Jones said.

Wes Eglintine is, “coming back after suffering a season ending knee injury last year. He is a three-year returning,” Jones clarified.

Coach Jones said of Kevin Toote, “Kevin is being heavily recruited by many Division 1 FCS schools.”

“Our senior class is outstanding in terms of leadership, work ethic, things like that,” Jones said proudly.

“We have some young kids up from the JV who are growing and really showing us some good things. We’re very happy with our skill players and we’re developing on the o-line and d-line. It’s pretty important to grow there quick,” Jones asserted.

There are 46 players on the team this year. The first game is against Niskayuna on Friday, September 1.
