While Lawrence figures to primarily be used at receiver, he could also see time at running back when the situation dictates.

John McBride is back at quarterback after throwing for nearly 1,600 yards as a junior.

In addition to Lawrence, McBride's top targets figure to be receivers Mike Johnson and Jordan Hudson as well as tight end Terry Love.

Anthony Mason returns at running back after running for more than 1,000 yards last year.

On the line, Jake Warehime returns for his third year as a starter on a unit that figures to be better than it was a year ago.

Defensively, Love should be a big part of the front at defensive end after registering 57 tackles last season.

Markice McKane returns at linebacker, where he had 116 tackles as a junior.

The Eagles had a chance to be much better this season even without dropping to Class 5A, but the switch figures to give Del City a chance to make the playoffs for the first time in awhile.
