Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Normally when you think of Class C football, you think of Chenango Forks.
The Blue Devils missed the playoffs last year for the first time since 2000.
But they're ready to end that streak.
The return a lot of experience, even if all of it didn't technically start.
As usual the boys in blue spent a lot of time in the off season weight room, trying to erase the memories of a playoff-less season.
"We don't talk about it much, but we don't have to. It's definitely a motivating factor. We overhear the kids talking about it quite a bit. They've worked hard in the offseason and they've certainly worked hard so far this year and they'll continue to work hard. But yeah, it's definitely a motivating factor," says head coach Dave Hogan.
"Definitely. We disappointed a lot of people and we want to get back to the top," says Nick Cannon, a senior split end and defensive back.
A big key to forks will be their play up front, with some 3rd year lineman returning.
