WAND Two-a-Days: Rochester


It's time for WAND Two-a-Days! Gordon Voit and Noah Newman preview two high school football teams a day every day until the season kicks off on August 24th!

ROCHESTER -- The Rockets are reloading for another run at a state championship - which would be their eighth in nine years.

Head coach Derek Leonard's squad will have to get it done with a different cast of characters for the most part this season. The state's leading receiver Cade Eddington is one of the few key playmakers back from last year's title team. The Rockets replace their entire front seven on defense.

Leonard expects to roll with two quarterbacks this year. Junior Clay Bruno and senior Brock Mackiney will take turns manning the ship.
