Summary: The Comets lost Jake Plantz, Andrew Bench, and Nate Lewis but Patterson says the team has strong leaders in the senior class. They’ll still run the football with Daniel Novotney who ran for 1,000 yards last season. They are very young at the defensive back and linebacker position. The kicking game is a work in progress. The players say they’re using the loss in playoffs as motivation and chemistry is good. There’s a “brotherhood” and a “closeness from freshmen to senior.”
