Head coach: Greg Miller (first year)

2016 record/notes: N/A — 2017 is the first season for the Wolverines

District (2016 champ): 7A-5 (Lake Nona)

Players to watch: Gabe Deneen, junior (offensive/defensive line); Isaiah Jackson, junior (quarterback); Judah Martin, junior (offensive/defensive line); Josh Albertson, sophomore (linebacker)

Outlook: With no seniors and just a handful of players with any varsity playing experience, the players and staff at Windermere High have their work cut out for them. The Wolverines feature a number of players that are relatively new to the game, so this season will see a steep learning curve for the roster, at large. Still, Greg Miller said his players have been taking the coaching his staff has been giving well, and that the team’s lack of seniors and relative inexperience will not be a crutch. Despite some tough non-district games, Windermere’s district slate appears relatively manageable.

Fun fact: Windermere High was built to relieve West Orange High, home of the Warriors — and, ironically enough, the Wolverines will be “road warriors” this fall. With the off-campus stadium not slated for completion until December at the earliest, the Wolverines will play all road games this fall.
