Team 1585 Scitobor Robotics of Red Jacket Central School
Holzy’s Army has been competing in the FRC since 2005. With the change of teachers in 2012, Holzy’s Army did not compete. Long time teacher and former robotics coach Charles Holzinger had retired. After Holzinger retired, John Sarazyn came along to take over where Holzinger left off. With a long off season we came back ready to battle.
In case you haven’t noticed Scitobor is just robotics spelled backwards. This clever name was voted during the 2014 build season by our team members. A lot of hard work goes into our build seasons. During weeknight meetings and long Saturday meetings a lot of hard work goes into trying to make our robot ready for competition.
We would like to thank all our sponsors and mentors for all their help and for all our success. Please contact us if you’re interested in sponsoring us or mentoring this team next season.
