Anxious to remove that bitter taste of disappointment  that came with a loss in the Division 2 state championship game last year, Lowell, with the leadership of senior quarterback Gabe Dean, will seek out a fourth state title in 2011.

Lowell coach Noel Dean is quick to point out that his club returns just two offensive starters.

Gabe Dean, however, is a big one. The senior in two years as a starting quarterback fro the Red Arrows has thrown and run for  over 4,000 yards.

“He will look to add to that in his senior year. Gabe has benefitted from having many good players around him,” Dean said.

The other starter is running back Josh Addington.

“Our approach and the components needed in finding success will be more of the same, we just want to do it better,” Dean says.

Fans will also see and hear alt from junior tight end Red Stormzand.

Defensively, Lowell will keep the typical junkyard dog defense approach. “We’re going to come hit them in typical Lowell defensive style,”  Dean said.


Leading that charge will be defense end Pierce Watson; inside linebacker Jake Stehley; outside linebacker Jordan Drake along with the play in the secondary of Renn Osborne.

“The two keys for us will be the ability to tackle and the play of our offensive line,” Dean said. Both will be tested in the opener against Rockford. “Both pieces are so critical on our way to getting better.”

The Lowell coach claims Grand Rapids Christian is front runner in the O-K White in 2011. “With all the new talent they have, Christian should win the league,” Dean said.

Lowell opens the season up at home against Rockford.
