A good returning core of starting players on offense will include 3 lineman and quarterback. The Kicker is back which should help the offense and field position for the defense. There are young players coming up who have a significant amount of game time from 14.

The defense has 3 returners in the front eight.



Youth on both sides of ball. Sophs and first year players as juniors will play. The roster will be dominated by underclassmen . Depth is always a problem at the smallest Ches Mont American School.   The number of two way players



Coming off an Inaugural season with 3 wins in the last 4 games will provide the vanguards with some momentum heading into 2015. The team will be young and ready to compete in an always tough ches-mont American conference. Traditional Ches-mont powers will be a challenge for vanguards.

Questions need to be answered in all three phases of game. The Vanguards experienced players must remain injury free. This will give the team time to develop and mature as the season progresses. They will compete and fight in each game on the schedule. The Building continues with an improvement on 2 league wins as a goal.
