Team Strength(s) for 2017:

Jackson Allen - WR / Jacob Bambrick QB / Dominic Delicata DE / Connor Mead WR
2017 Season Outlook:
Expectations are high and commitment in offseason has been great - the players are hungry to win our conference and a long playoff run. Everyone is fired up to start this season versus 2 of the top 12 programs in the state. There won't be any "warm-up" games to start off and we need to be ready to roll week one.
Outlook on Conference/Division:
There are a lot of good coaches in our conference, Lutheran Northwest and Oakland Christian return a lot of athletes and are both poised for good seasons.
