DUTCHTOWN - For the Dutchtown high school football team, the challenges always begin with difficult Ascension Parish rivals, and the schedule only gets tougher from there.
Still, the Griffins have held their own against St. Amant and East Ascension, and could return another strong team after going 10-3 (4-1) in 2013.
The Griffins return 11 starters from last year's team and have veteran leadership at quarterback, running back and in the defensive backfield.
They'll need an inexperienced offensive line to come together quickly to have another shot at the 5-5A district title.
