Germantown Academy

Coach: Matt Dence (2nd year, 3-6)

Last season: 3-6 overall; 0-5 Inter-Ac League.

Offense: Spread.

Defense: Multiple/3-4.

Top 10: Hayes Nolte, QB, 6-4, 230; Kyle Donahue, WR-DB, 6-1, 190; Patrick Cawley, OL-LB, 6-0, 210; Cliff David, 6-0, 230; Myles Anthony, RB-DB, 5-7, 165; Darian Alter, OL-DE, 6-2, 230; John Dean, OL-DL, 6-4, 275; Sean Weiss, OL-DL, 6-3, 240; Ted Arsenault, WR-DB, 5-10, 170; Kashta Davis, WR-DB, 5-10, 170.

Others to watch: Andrew Simon, TE-LB, 6-2, 210; Ryan Calhoun, RB-LB, 6-0, 205; Riley Kordek, RB-DB, 5-8, 170.

The skinny: Nolte, a 1,600-yard passer and second-team all-Inter-Ac pick last season, is drawing interest from Ivy, Patriot, and CAA schools; David, a rugged performer, could wind up at Trinity or Hamilton; Donahue, also a second-team all-league pick, made 24 catches for 500-plus yards and two TDs; Cawley is a second-year captain; Calhoun, a standout catcher in baseball, returns to the gridiron; Kordek, who played youth football for the Rhawhurst Raiders, is a key senior addition who joins Anthony and Calhoun in the backfield.

Dence says: "Our goal is to win every game. We're good enough to beat every team on our schedule."

Key games: Oct. 19 vs. Malvern Prep, 1:30; Oct. 26 at Haverford School, 2; Nov. 9 at Penn Charter, 1:30.
