2017 Offense We feel we have best  overall team speed since I’ve been at Shikellamy. We have a nice blend of size and speed at WR that should make us tough to defend. We lost 5 starters in OL, so will be inexperienced up front – but are confident in our young group of Offensive LIne men

Defense: Defensively we return 2 all league DE’s (Munoz and Dievert) and 2 LBs (Tilford and Krieger) so we feel we are solid in the middle.

Krankoskie, Dodge and  Joey Folk are experienced in the defensive backfield, and we have several young guys looking to compete for playing time.
