Outlook: Kelly is in his second season at Fostoria after spending four years as head coach at Lakota.
The Redmen have 45 players, but just seven are seniors.
“We have a few experienced juniors, and 18 freshmen that show a promising future,” Kelly said.
But he said the seniors are inexperienced except for Randall.
“We have a junior class that is athletic but, as a team, developing depth with a talented freshmen class is a key,” Kelly said. “We must develop depth and have our kids and stay healthy.”
