PORTAGE -- Gary Gouse has been at the helm of the Portage Mustangs for 25 years.
The veteran coach enjoyed last season's 9-3 campaign, but believes this season could be even better because of their attitude.
"I have watched them play since junior varsity, and they don't want to lose," Gouse told 6 Sports.
"When you have kids like that you can have a chance in any game you play."
Portage will take on Ferndale to open the season.
