2016 Offensive outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on offense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

The 2016 Red Tornadoes must spread the ball around and keep their So. QB John Ayres healthy. They must also improve on their passing game to supplement their strong running attack.

2016 Defensive Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on defense. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

The success of MCA’s defense will rest in the hands of their big defensive line which is much improved from last season. Look for the MCA D to take a big leap forward in 2016, their 2nd season in the 4-2-5 system.

2016 Special Teams Outlook: (Please let us know the keys about your team on special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?)

Soccer played turned place kicker Rosalino Mangiapaine should be a weapon for MCA this season after finding his groove about three quarters through last season.
Junior Tommy McDonald proved to be one of the area’s best punters last season & will continue to improve.
