Summary: Coach Mark Emans retired. He's putting his focus on fishing. Replacing him is one of his assistants Josh Andrews. That alone creates a new energy. They do have holes to fill on the offensive line and they lost all three linebackers. Dawson Delventhal was a three-year starting QB for the Flyers. He graduated. Tyler Saffran takes over. They'll go away from a traditional wing-T formation on offense a bit but they'll still be a hard-nosed running team. Fifty two kids are out for the team including 12 seniors.
