2015 Outlook: We have seven seniors who started as sophomores and won a Ches-Mont Title. This year we have 16 starters returning. We were stung by our failure at the end of the season. We have proven able to score points and know that we must improve defensively to be a factor in District 1.

With nine returning starters on that side, we should show marked improvement this year. On Offense, we lost our QB, Tyler McNulty to graduation. Tom Mattioni will replace him. Tom has started on both sides of the ball since his sophomore year and will be a real dual threat QB for us.
