Summary: Napoleon returns several key players so they’ll have a mixture of experience and youth. Team speed should be a strength. Coach Strock likes the depth he has at the running back and linebacker positions. Logan Shepard will be difficult to replace but there are reasons to be optimistic. Expect them to be competitive and they’ll need non-conference wins to make the playoffs attainable.
