Last year’s record: 7-2

Playoff result: Lost in Section 2 Class B quarterfinals to Schuylerville

Returning starters: Donovan Pacatte (quarterback), Hunter Edwards (running back/linebacker), Patrick Nichols (tight end/defensive end), Joe DeChristopher (wide receiver/linebacker), Steve Maniscalco (wide receiver/defensive back), Spencer Lindstead (offensive guard), Ron Smith (offensive guard), Timothy Benac (offensive tackle), Isidro Santiago (defensive tackle), Alan Sperbeck (defensive back), Alex Javitz (free safety)

Graduated: Tim Dahl (offensive tackle/defensive end), Cameron Strang (wide receiver/defensive back), Mitchell VanDerWerken, Austin Kubat (center)

Newcomers: Tucker Farnum (wide receiver), Danny Veley (center), Jacob Dafeldecker (wide receiver), Jeff Crooks (linebacker), Willim Madgziuk (defensive end), Isiah Gerhardt (wide receiver/defensive back)

Outlook: The Bulldogs lost key cogs on the line with the graduation of Dahl (first team Reinfurt Division defensive end, third team All-State) and Kubat (second team Reinfurt Division), along with VanDerWerken (first team all-purpose player) and Strang (first team defensive back). However, they have a strong group of returning skill position players on offense.

“We [have to] focus on the future while building on last season, where ego is in check and we accept our role[s],” said Hantho. “The offensive line jells, and we stay healthy. We grasp offensive and defensive changes quickly.”
