Returning letter winners: 12

Returning starters: Offense 6, defense 7

Schemes: West Coast pro-set/​5-2

Top players: Seniors Tobey Hernandez, 5-9, 175, RB; Zach Nye, 6-0, 165, WR; Derrick Hoops, 5-9, 155, WR-DB; Colt Pettit, 6-4, 260; OL-DL; Josh Petersen, 5-11, 182, TE-DB. Junior Caleb Carrizales, 6-2, 240, OL-DE.

Outlook: The Patriots are among the league's most talented teams and a legitimate contender for the league title.

"We have the potential to be a very good team," Inselmann said. "However, we must develop some young talent to fill in certain spots and give us depth."

Pettit, who has committed to play at Virginia Tech, leads the line blocking for Hernandez, who rushed for 1,285 yards and scored 21 TDs last season.

Nye, Hoops and Petersen are among the 12 returning letter winners, but with just 31 players for depth, PH needs to avoid injuries.
