The Blade/Jeremy Wadsworth
Coach: Britton Devier, 3rd year
Last season: 2-8, 1-6
Returning letter winners: 15
Returning starters: Offense 7, defense 7
Top players: Senior Zach Brossia 5-10, 165, WR; Jake Rothert 5-9, 195 T/N; Coleton Bihn 5-9, 135,WR; Danny Munoz 6-1, 256, OG/DT. Juniors Jake Matwiejczyk 5-11, 195 WR; Tony Rozzi 5-9,' 155, RB/ILB; Evan Ulinski 5-5,140, WR/CB.
Outlook: Devier has eight seniors among 45 players, including many with varsity experience.
He said he expects his players to excel in their second year of his spread offense.
Brossia earned All-NBC second team after making 59 catches. Bihn had 32 catches for 560 yards, while Ulinski had 34 catches and three touchdowns.
But the Wildcats are learning a new defensive system, and depth also is a concern.
"Early season success will be important for our outcome," Devier said. "The team is a close-knit group, which should help when we have to handle adversity. Up tempo offense and playing fast on defense will be our goals."
