Not user friendly for me but maybe it's one of those sites that the younger generation maneuvers through quite easily.

I'm convinced most of these website "enhancements" are a function of programmers determined to tinker and show off rather than awareness of user-related desires.

Web design is a monkey-see/monkey-do business. Lots of websites these days feature "carousels" (slides that rotate the "headlines" across the page), so now every designer feels they have to use them.
Same with the overuse of social media links (Twitter feeds, Facebook feeds, etc.).

Beyond that general gripe, I don't find much fault with the new site. There's a menu bar above the carousel which makes it easy to find most pertinent information:
"Home * Schedule * 2017 Schedule * Roster * Coaches * News * Football Assoc./Make a Gift * More "

Full disclosure - I'm accessing it on a desktop, not a phone. No idea what it's like in a mobile browser.
