Team Synopsis:
Offensively rebuliding. Young at skill positions, having to replace entire offensive backfield. Also have to replace three offensive linemen. Defensively have a good core of players back. Lost two starters defensively but they were key to our success. Defense will have to carry us early. Special teams lost All State place kicker will be tough to replace, but we have a young kicker that we like a lot. Overall, should be solid defensively but will have to grow into ourselves offensively. Great, young talen.
