MULTIMEDIA Camp Days: Copley High School

For Wednesday's edition of Camp Days, we're looking at the 2016 edition of the Copley Indians under head coach Scott Chouinard.

Chouinard joined us at Surburban League Media Days in Cuyahoga Falls last week, and he said that his team is excited to put on the pads and get after it on the football field.

 "One of our top goals is making sure we're healthy all the way through the season,  win one game at a time, an our ultimate goal is to win the Suburban League."

 The Indians won 9 games in 2015, and are looking to make a solid run not only in the league, put in the postseason as well.

 Chouinard also pointed to the tough Suburban League slate and how each week is a tough matchup between well-coached teams with talented and hard-working players.
