Coaches outlook for 2018 season: “Lansdale Catholic enters into the 2018 season hoping to build upon the success they experienced last year. The team is young, and has several positions that need to be filled after graduating a large and talented group of seniors last season. Fortunately, LC enjoys a healthy mix of young talent to spread amongst the different veteran returners, and looks to continue its recent success within the PCL. This season is an excellent opportunity to give several young players a good amount of game experience to build upon in the coming years, while relying heavily upon a strong junior class and the few returning seniors on the roster.”
