Christian Heritage returns senior running backs Caleb McGehee and Andy Habib from last year's 7-4 team.

Habib rushed for 769 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior, and McGehee rushed for 486 and seven.


Defensively for CHA, junior linebacker Aaron Condreay is back after 52 tackles and 3.5 sacks last season. McGehee was also a defensive leader with 45 tackles and two interceptions.

JUNIORS ANCHOR TECUMSEH BACKFIELD

Tecumseh coach Greg George will be counting heavily on a pair of juniors as the primary players in his offensive backfield this season.

Colton Owen is a solid throwing quarterback, offset by a small but powerful running back in Julian Tramble.

At 5-foot-9, 165 pounds, Tramble has good quickness and can catch the ball out of the backfield as well. He also is valuable to the Savages in the defensive backfield.

Tecumseh's physical defensive line is led by another junior, Nick Napoleon.

BETHEL HOPING TO BUILD OFF STRONG FINISH

Last season didn't end the way Bethel hoped — with a trip to the playoffs — but the Wildcats still had a strong finish in Eddie Paul's first season.

Bethel finished 4-6 with wins in three of its final four games, making a late run at a postseason bid.

Justin Vermillion, a 6-foot, 225-pound senior, will be valuable to the Wildcats on both sides of the ball. He anchors the defense at linebacker and will also get some work in the offensive backfield.

Sophomore Dillion Dutton was dangerous as a kick returner last year and could make an impact for the Wildcats this season as well.

LITTLE AXE PLAYERS DETERMINED

After going out in the first round of the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, Little Axe is determined to break through this season and give the Indians their first postseason win.
