“We’re younger and fitness-wise much better,” Hutton said. “Last year, we were the team other teams expected to get a win against. We’re not that team this year.”
While the Dynamo are off to a solid start, Griest, in his second season, believes the best is yet to come for the young team.
“We’ve gotten some results, but we haven’t put our best foot forward yet,” he said. “I’m expecting big things if we can put the pieces together at the right time.”
And Roger Glass Stadium seems to be the ideal venue to showcase the revamped Dynamo squad.
“You couldn’t ask for a better venue in the Dayton area, it’s truly first class,” Griest said. “I’m excited to see it under the lights.”
Tickets will be available Friday at the gate and range from $5-$15.
