Class D football preview capsules, schedules
Salamanca Warriors (4-5)
Coach: Chad Bartoszek, first season.
Home field: Vets Park.
Program founded: Circa 1915.
Outlook: Bartoszek returns to his alma mater to lead the Warriors, who lost in last season’s Class D semifinals to Maple Grove. He has a solid core of talent to work with, including dual-threat quarterback Lucas McKenna. McKenna will have a familiar face at wide receiver in his older brother, Jarrett. Salamanca lost two big playmakers in Tyler Hedlund and Ira John, but Bartoszek expects to adjust the offense to fit personnel, similar to what he did in six seasons at Franklinville/Ellicottville.
