Key Stats: Averaged 248 rushing yards per game & over 350 yards of offense per game in 2017.

2018 Offensive Outlook: Mt. Carmel Area returns of bevy of skill players including John Ayres who ran for over 1400 yards, Tom Reisinger who threw for over 1300 yards, and Shane Weidner who scored 14 TD’s last season. There will be a lot of competition in order to solidify the the offensive line that lost 3 seniors to graduation.

2018 Defensive Outlook: There will be plenty of speed and athleticism on the Red Tornadoes defense which returns 11 starters, some of whom were lost to injury last season.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: MCA will have to replace their school record holding kicker, Rosolino Mangiapane. With a lot of speed at the skill positions, the coverage & return teams will be solid.
