2020 Football Preview: Midland Trail Patriots

HICO, WV (WOAY) – After coming close in Frank Isaacs’ first two seasons as head coach, Midland Trail football is riding a streak of three straight playoff appearances, and they believe that momentum can continue.

With the Patriots returning many players on both sides of the ball, they’ve entered preseason motivated to start the year on a winning note, but also keeping safety protocols in mind due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Midland Trail’s theme in 2019 was “reload, not rebuild” after the graduation of many seniors from the 2018 Class A semifinal squad, and this year’s group is adopting a similar mentality.
