No doubt... but that's as in depth as anything we got last year.

Understandable... Curt isn't much of a talker as it is anyway.

Jumping all over the place, position by position...
I didn't realize that Calabrette lead the team in tackles last year. I figured that he had the most sacks, but I didn't know that he had 9.
I didn't realize that Serrano had 6 sacks either. Maybe he moves over to backside DE this year? And I'd like to see Kistler back at strong side DE after he only played offense last year. Sekol could also play some strong side DE.
Just a shot in the dark at DT... maybe Vlosich and Walker?

Rushing wise... #7 was basically a nonfactor in the 2nd half of the season. 790 yards and 11 touchdowns is decent on paper... but 500+ of that and all 11 touchdowns came in the first 5 weeks of the season. I don't know if he was playing injured or what. I figured he would've lead the team in tackles, too.
Who is gonna take his spot at LB this year? My guess would be either Burnside or Donnadio. And they'll take a committee approach at RB with Chism, Brown, and Donnadio. A slash, dash, and smash trio. Tomko/Burnside at FB... maybe Serrano if they ever want some more muscle in the backfield.

Receivers... Kopnicky, Caldwell, Hawkins, Durken, etc. Maybe more balanced 4 WR sets from the gun, with Chism/Brown to Hall's left.

The secondary should be a major strength. I'm thinking Hawkins back at FS, keep Brown at SS, and Kopnicky and Durken at the corners.

I think the defense has the potential to be something special for the next couple years. It's just a matter of if the offense can step it up.
If the OL is better this year, they'll be fine.

Schedule...
Liberty... W.
Crestview... Rebels will be tough, but should be a W. Cats run away with that game last year if not for all the fumbles. Credit to Crestview for coming to play. They should bring it again this year.
Niles... who knows... should be a W, unless their new HC gets them turned around sooner than expected. I don't think the cupboard is completely empty over there just yet.
Jefferson... W.
Canfield.... I expect Canfield to take a slight step back this year. Dawson got some good experience at QB last year backing up Fiorenza, Crawford will be a very tough RB for them for the next couple years, they have their best WR back, and 3 or 4 OL back. They lose like everyone on defense, though. I think they only have like 2 or 3 guys back on defense, all on the DL. Their offense should be pretty good... if their defense can put it together, they can be scary. They lose a ton of speed, though.
Poland... they have some holes to fill at RB, TE, WR, and on the OL. But they should be alright on offense. Defensively, they also lose 8 or 9 starters from last year. It's Poland, though... they always reload. And they have 70-80 boys out for football this year, so they'll have depth. They really embarrassed us last year, so that bitter taste should still be there. Hopefully it fuels the Cats this year.
Campbell... W. Final game in the series... end of an era!
Hubbard... they'll be the most talented team on the schedule this year. And getting Morales and Donlow back this year will be a huge boost for them. They'll be tough to beat... but the Cats have won the last 3 in a row vs Hubbard, and 4 of the last 6. Kuntz seems to have Hoffman's number.
Edgewood... W.
Lakeview... they're going 15-0 and winning state, so L!
Seriously though, Lakeview isn't a pushover. But I don't think they'll be as good as last year. Probably like 6-4, 7-3.

Cats should win at least 6 games this year. But my guess would be 8-2 and another trip to the playoffs. The key games will be Canfield, Poland, Hubbard, and Lakeview. It'll be tough to win all 4 of those games... but if they can get a 2-2 split against them, they'll make the playoffs comfortably. It's a very tough region. Might need 9-1 for a top 4 seed, though... that's always the goal!

I think Tomko is going to take over for Willie at that spot. He is an aggressive kid with a knack for the ball. I agree about the rest. Burnside will probably play the same capacity he did last season at that hybrid backer spot. I donít know if Donnadio has realized his talent yet, but Iím hoping he does if he hasnít already. No reason why that kid shouldnít start both sides of the ball. The junior class as a whole is extremely talented.
I agree the cats have at least 6 wins. Looking at 6-8 wins i think. If they somehow beat Poland and Canfield or 1/2 they are an 8-9 win team.

Jd’s brother will surprise a lot of people this season catching the ball and being moved around I’m sure to get the ball in his hands as well as Hawkins. I can see more of a press look this season to try and hit some more big plays with brown, etc out of the backfield, we will probably start early on with the normal the first 4 weeks of the season. 7 was suspended last season against Poland, and didn’t have a big game after that, to me it helps more then it hurts losing that player, a lot of attitude and not much work ethic

7 got kicked out of the Poland game for throwing a punch late in the 1st half, missed the 2nd half, and sat out the Campbell game.
I don't want to bury the kid, but his lack of commitment showed.

I was wondering what role the younger Hall would have. Any chance he takes over at QB next year? Or is Hawkins penciled in there.

And I wouldn't mind them going with an up tempo spread attack to start the season. Wouldn't hurt to get a feel for it early, so they're not still working out the kinks against the meat of the schedule.

Yeah I think the Younger hall will start at receiver or a corner. Heís very good. Next years QB situation is a mess I think. Hawkins is probably the guy unless that Metska kid comes back out. He was very talented.

Noticed you hit the 1k mark.
Good to see you back. Miss reading your insight into the Cats!

Nursing home has strict computer hours. He will be on soon enough though. This is Lakeviews best team ever. Beat St Edís in a passing scrimmage 74-0

Losing Mitchell’s talent won’t help but losing the attitude will, a lot of kids went how he went last year

Nah... just need a break from Yappi every now and then.

I don't know how much info I have. really nothing that isn't already public knowledge by this point. I just fill in the blanks with insight and speculation. I'm not too bad at saying a lot, but also saying very little. lol

Most likely no on the scrimmages.
I will however be attending most, if not all, of the Little Hardhats games... if that interests anyone. lol

Carson Ryan is playing this year he will be a huge red zone target , I also heard the younger Hall will be starting at WR and get a lot of playing time on defense . They said said he is the fastest kid on the team . I look for him to take on the new Adams roll on the team. The defense will be really good, maybe the best defense under Kuntz .
