2015 Outlook: Bringing two groups together as one for this upcoming season. The close of Pius X HS is bringing players and coaches from a very successful 2014 Pius X District Championship team to NDGP.

Defensively we want to have an aggressive style of play including creating turnovers + outplaying and outworking other teams.

Offensively we will look to be consistent and score a bunch of points by utilizing team speed and athleticism.

Overall we want to keep the right mindset & attitude approaching the season and our goals.

    NDGP is considered AA this year. I don’t think they will be 10-0 but 7-3 or 8-2 is a good possibility.

  2. Matt says:

    only six more weeks!

  3. David Mika says:

    @ Matt….I agree with you. The Colonial should be fun to watch.

  4. Matt says:

    im putting ND at 7-3 in my preseason cl picks…. they open with NW which will be a big test… the cl is tough this year…. Nw, NL, SV, SL, and Salisbury, and ND should all be at or above 500…its gonna be a interesting year in the CL with big matchups every week.

  5. David Mika says:

    @Rollie. Notre Dame is a interesting team. When is the last time a team went 0-10 and 10-0 the next year? I think they will be a 6 to 8 win team this year.

  6. Rollie Ciffo says:

    Is the merger of Pius and ND expected to produce a contender?

  7. Biggie Smalls says:

    I know kids transferred I’m from Pius but it’s still an A school…. That’s s lot of potential D1 prospects for a team that was 0-10 last year no?
