Key Stats: – John Croft returns at MLB after leading the team in total tackles (100) last year as a sophomore
– Justin Bezek enters his third year as a starting quarterback and will look to surpass the 1000-yard passing mark for a third time in his career
– Luke Bennett returns to lead a deep receiving corps after finishing 5th in the conference in receiving yards (483) last season as a junior

2017 Offensive Outlook: Playmaking experience on both the line and in the backfield should allow the offense to play solid complementary football with both the run and pass game. A multiple attack will be used. Six players who started games on the offensive line will return from what was a young group last year, and will look to protect a 3-year starting quarterback and pave the way for a solid crew of athletes on the edges. Winning the line of scrimmage will be the foundation for the Devils’ success; making consistent plays on the outside could make the offense special.

2017 Defensive Outlook: A bounty of experience on the defensive line and in the defensive backfield could help the Devils establish a formidable defensive identity this season. CC’s 2016 Team Defensive MVP Nick Knopp returns for his junior season in his OLB/SS position. Fully solidifying the linebacking corps around Knopp and Croft could result in the stingiest Red Devil defense since 2013, the last time CC made the postseason.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: Returning experience and depth in the both the kicking and return games should help “gain the extra offensive play” and win the field position battle.

    Thanks for your post on this website. From my own personal experience, periodically softening way up a photograph may provide the photographer with a bit of an creative flare. Many times however, that soft clouds isn’t what exactly you had as the primary goal and can usually spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging them.
