"A place like Oneida is special. Its last man on the road, last man leaving town turn the lights out. Its just a very electric energy on Friday nights," said Head Coach Tony Lambert. "You are playing for a purpose; you're playing with a passion that these kids have had instilled in them growing up throughout their childhood and just wearing the big orange."
After losing 16 seniors, leaving Oneida with little experience for the 2013 season, the team has centered a focus on exactly what head coach, Tony Lambert, describes (?); becoming a family and that small-town Friday night atmosphere.
Senior cornerback and safety, Cole West, brings his competitive nature to push the team as he embraces the orange and small quirks that makes Oneida's fanbase stand out from the rest.
"They're very loud and I love hearing those cowbells. Most people hate them but I love it. I love nothing more in this world than playing here on Friday nights in front of our crowd," said Cole West.
Hopefully with the help of Senior lineman, Dustin Laxton, the two leaders can help drive the team to give their crowd something to love as well during the upcoming season.
