Oneonta, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Oneonta Yellowjackets ended last season on a 3 game winning streak.

They hope to continue that momentum, but it's going to be difficult.

The YellowJackets roster has a lot less kids than they did last year.

Coaches feel they have about 25 players.

And while they have some experience at quarterback and on the line, the biggest issue will be keeping guys healthy.

"All around on both offense and defense, our first and in a lot of spots, 1 backup are pretty good. There's a couple of spots where if one guy gets binged up, we're going to have to move 2 or 3 guys around and that's going to weaken us as a team overall," says coach Adam Hoover.

Oneonta starts the season on Friday night against Sidney, in a game that will be played at Norwich High School.
