Coach: Kevin Pellegrini (5th year, 29-15).

Last season: 6-5 overall; 3-2 Inter-Ac League.

Offense: Wing-T/spread.

Defense: Multiple.

Top 10: Troy Gallen, RB-DB, 6-0, 175; Hunter Paulus, FB-LB, 6-2, 235; John Nassib, TE-DE, 6-5, 250; Alex Hornibrook, QB, 6-3, 185; Hayden Mahoney, OL-DL, 6-5, 270; Trevor Morris, WR-LB, 6-3, 190; Jake Anderson, LB, 5-11, 220; Jordan Majors, DB, 6-2, 190; Dymond Wright, RB-DB, 5-9, 175; Mike McCarthy, OL-DL, 6-2, 250.
