Summary: The Joeys are gone – Wiemer, Oehlers, Shepherd. Three prolific players will need to be replaced along with 17 other starters. They may have graduated but the triple-option offense remains. Is another extended playoff run in play this season? Yes. Wood’s teams are always well coached and improve from game to game. They will rely on 28 seniors on this year’s team.
