STUARTS DRAFT, Va. – For the Cougars, making the postseason has been a tradition. This year it might be a little tougher once they get there.
For the 2013-2015 seasons, Stuarts Draft will now be classified as a 3A school, the largest in the Shenandoah District. That means if, or when, they make the postseason, the Cougars won't see match-ups with schools like Wilson Memorial or Riverheads, instead they'll match up with teams like Broadway, Fort Defiance or Turner Ashby.
As far as goals for the Cougars, nothing has changed. Stuarts Draft has made the playoffs each of the past six seasons, but have never made it further than the state quarterfinals, where their season ended last season. The Cougars have their eyes on a state title, once again, a close-knit brotherhood of players with their expectations and goals set high.
Once again, Draft will run the Wing-T ground based offense they are known for. Defensively, the Cougars will primarily base out of a 4-3.
