The toughest job for incoming head Pleasantville football coach Graig Eichenberger will be to replace the irreplaceable.

Sawyer Phillips has led the Trojans in tackles since his sophomore campaign, but has now graduated along with other linebackers Griffin McBride, Austin Flesher, and Chris Morris. The Trojans do bring back All-District defensive end Chaz Clark who was second on the team in tackles and had seven sacks and 25 solo tackles for loss on the season, but trying to replace Phillips and the other linebacking crew will be difficult.
