McCarrick returns just five starters from last year’s 3-6 squad, but he likes the positive attitude his young Webberville team has displayed as it gains experience. He thinks the Spartans needs to improve their toughness and execution, but he likes the overall team quickness that often translates into success and wins.


Kigabi Muzaliwa, a refugee from Africa, started several games last year at cornerback and will return this year as a tailback and defensive back. McCarrick says Muzaliwa shows good quickness and has an obvious commitment to the weight room. McCarrick added that “we hope we have the language issues licked.”


Kyle Oesterle started at guard last year for the entire season and also played at linebaker in most games. He is being moved to wide receiver this fall and will start at what McCarrick calls his “Sam” linebacker spot this year. Jimmy Albin started each game on the offensive line as well as in several different positions on defense. He will return as a captain and the leader of the line, playing guard. He will also be in the thick of the competition for the middle linebacker spot.


Senior wide receiver and defensive back Owen Judd may join the team after his broken foot heals. McCarrick says Judd would add a lot to the Spartans’ chances of success.
