Summary: Coach Rutherford likes the depth on his team. They want to know how good they are right off the bat and that's why they schedule O-G in week one. They'll rely upon a strong senior class. Rayford and Pickerel both ran for 1,000 yards last season. They're both back. Rutherford likes his offensive line too. In many people’s minds the Eagles are the team to beat in the Northern Buckeye Conference.
