Millington Cardinals – 2016 Preview


Expectations are high in Millington, that’s something that hasn’t changed from the reign of Legendary Head Coach Tim Furno and under the past 7 seasons with Roger Bearss.  The Cardinals will be going for a 10th straight season with at least 8 wins and haven’t had a losing season season since 1988.  Millington finished a game behind Frankenmuth in the TVCE standings last year and you can be sure that’s been on their minds since.  The two rivals have either won the TVC East title outright or shared the title the past 6 seasons.  This year both are projected to be right at the top again, with some company.
