Proctor, Minn . - The season starts for the Proctor Rails on Friday as they look to build off their state semifinal appearance in 2013.

Derek Parendo's team has just a few starters returning, but about 17 seniors are on this year's roster, each with playing experience. Parendo says they will step into some key roles.

Proctor visits Pine city to begin the regular season.

"We have just been watching film and keying in on what they've (Pine City) been doing the last couple of years and we've been working hard and doing our jobs that we are supposed to be doing," says senior RB/LB Jake Wick.

"(We) have a lot of leaders and a good group of kids that have been working hard over the summer and hopefully it shows - I guess - over the year," says senior RB/LB Tanner Haedrich.

"This group we have is ready to go, they have been prepared and they had their varsity experience last year and may not have started, but had a lot of good quality snaps," says Parendo.
