Strengths/Question Marks: “We have a lot of younger players that contributed to a playoff year and gained experience. They are hungry for more this year and have worked extremely hard in the off season. The Face off X will always be the ?. We are set up to succeed this season and will need to control possession.”

Coach’s outlook for 2018 season: “The players have worked very hard in the offseason. They got a taste of what it’s like to make the Playoffs and came very close to beating The Defending District 1 champs from (2016). They are looking to make a deep run in the playoffs.” “Energy Flows Where your attention goes”
