ABOUT THE TEAM

Coach: Paul Amstutz, first year

Last season: 5-5, 4-4 NWOAL

Returning letter winners: 15

Returning starters: Offense 5, defense 5

Schemes: Multiple option/‚Äč3-4

Top players: Seniors Logan Pinkelman, 6-3, 210, OL-DL; Patrick Natter, 5-9, 150, RB-DB; Stonie-Sutton DeWitt, 6-2, 195, RB-LB; Travis Garlic, 6-1, 175, TE-LB. Juniors Carl Bettinger, 5-7, 244, C-NG; Kyle Brighton, 6-0, 155, WR-DB; Luke Hohman, 5-9, 150, OL-LB; Marty Nichols, 6-1, 260, OL-DL. Sophomore Tyler Coopshaw, 6-1, 175, TE-LB.

Outlook: The Vikings are working with their fourth coach in four years.

Amstutz, whose coached for the last two years as a Liberty Center assistant under Rex Lingruen, hopes to build a mindset of stability and consistency.

"That's what we're trying to change," Amstutz said.

The 11 seniors are led by Pinkelman, DeWitt, Garlic and Natter. However, Amstutz will call on juniors Bettinger and Brighton, as well as sophomore Coopshaw.

Evergreen lost several key performers like quarterback Matt Taylor (1,088 rushing yards, 1,002 passing yards) to graduation, but the Vikings return their starting offensive and defensive lines.
