PEORIA, Ill. — Being 2-7 is no fun.
Losing your starting tailback to a summer injury is no fun.
Having to play all of your “home” games across town while work is done on your stadium is no fun.
But the Richwoods Knights expect to have plenty of fun this season with a roster full of players who got plenty of playing time as sophomores and juniors in 2018. And even though the Knights won’t play a true home game this year while a new track is installed around their football field, they expect to be better than last fall’s two-win team.
Richwoods, which will play its 2019 home schedule at Peoria Stadium, opens the season at Normal Community on Aug. 30.
