Key Stats: 6-4 regular season record, lost in the first round of the playoffs to Marple Newtown. Broke scoring record for school averaging 38 ppg

2018 Offensive Outlook: We lost a lot of good seniors who are going on to play at the next level. Our interior line is strong and experienced but we need guys to step up at the tackle positions. Most of our skill positions, especially at RB and WR are experienced and we will be breaking in a new QB who started on defense for us last year, Brett Kochmansky. For us to run our no huddle spread offense at it’s highest level, we need our new guys to gel early so we can play as fast as possible.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We are really experienced on defense. We have 8 starters back from our playoff game last year and lot of other guys who got Varsity time. Our defense should be vastly improved and will need to start the year fast with our schedule and while our offense fits in some new personnel. Our league schedule is tough as always in the Ches-Mont and we need to get more physical on both sides of the football.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We are replacing our kicker and punter and are still figuring out who will fill those roles for us.
