YAKIMA, Wash. -- The Eisenhower Cadets began last season 4-1 but they finished 4-5 after being hit with a slew of injuries to their top players.

This season, the Cadets are scheduled to open their season September second against West Seattle.

The Cadets are a young team. They return only three or four starters on both sides of the ball. But, they insist they have the talent to make a big impact in the big 9.

Plus, they have more team chemistry than last season.

"We have a lot more than last year," said defensive end Mike Jones. "Last year, we had more clicks. I think that was what caused us to break a little last year but this year we have a lot of team chemistry."

"I think all of our kids feel that they don't want to repeat last year," said coach Dan Eyman. "I think that is one of the reasons that they put in a lot of hard work in the offseason. They don't want that injury bug to hit them again. There is some luck with that but there are some things that you can do and they've done that to try and prevent that."
