Come enjoy the show.

The Chesterton football team opens its season tonight when they host Hobart at 7 p.m. And it could be a fireworks show.

Were going to have to score points and I think we can, Chesterton coach Mark Peterson said after a 6-4 season last year.

Junior quarterback Chris Mullen is the trigger man for the Trojans. Mullen threw for 2,477 yards, 26 touchdowns and just eight interceptions last year.

Hes a two-year starter and thrown for almost 2,800 yards, Peterson said. Hes doing a great job and is a huge component for us. Chris has got great awareness and sense in the pocket. Hes become a great student of the game and just keeps learning week in and week out.

The rest of the offense is made up of a bunch of guys that got a lot of experience last year, Peterson said.

Namely juniors Colby Bullock and Jackson Westmoreland will fill the role of playmaker.

Were returning 5-6 full-time kids and three offensive lineman that saw a lot of time, Peterson said.

Defensively, the Trojans graduated nine starters on defense and only 4-5 kids are back that saw significant time on the field.

Were relatively young and inexperienced, but Im excited about what they can do, Peterson said. We have a lot of youth and enthusiasm on defense, but we have some holes to fill. They are only going to get better and better.

Senior Jackson Syren will handle kickoff duties for the Trojans and is battling with classmate Dylan Boland for the field goal, point-after-touchdown job.
