Key Stats: The Bishop Guilfoyle Marauders come into the season with a 47 game win streak but will have to replace their QB, RB, TE and a couple of dominant lineman. The Marauders have averaged 95 TDs over the past 3 seasons while only giving up an average of 5 points per game over that time span.

2017 Offensive Outlook: This year’s offense will have a different look replacing several 2 year starters at the skilled positions, but projected starter Mark Conrad is poised to have a monster year. He combines his 6’2″ frame with a 4.53-40 yard dash time and has an incredibly strong arm. In 2 starts last year, Mark went 20 of 24 for 420 yards and 4 TDs. Carrying the load on the ground will be several players including Michael Berish, Josh Yasulitis, John Fanelli, Max Sankey, & Luke Wills – this group has some serious speed and power. This year’s Oline will be Huge again. They will average 6’2″ 275 pounds

2017 Defensive Outlook: The Marauders return 3 DBs and 3 LB’s this year and will rely on their overall team speed to shut opponents down. Nick Leamer ( 47 game 3 year starter) will anchor the DL and several key newcomers on the Dline could have big seasons.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: With Jr. All-American K/P Kolton McGhee ( who has several P5 offers already) returning the special teams should be solid
