OFFENSE

With one season under his belt, including a run to the quarterfinals of the Class 2A playoffs, senior quarterback Austin Hines (5-10, 185, Sr.) should be even better in his final campaign. Hines, who completed over 60-percent of his passes for 2,866 yards and 43 touchdowns while rushing for 12 more touchdowns and over 600 yards, will have the benefit of nine returners on the offensive side of the ball. Back is Brock Borin (6-4, 230, Jr.) at tight end providing a big target as evident by his seven touchdowns on 13 receptions. The wide receiver corps is more than solid with 1,000 yard receiver Barrett Bradbury (6-0, 160, Jr.) back after hauling in 15 touchdowns on 55 receptions. Holden Yoder (6-0, 165, So.) and Garrett Long (5-11, 160, So.) should improve upon impressive freshman seasons at wide receiver. In the backfield, Jacob Lappe (5-9, 180, Jr.) will likely see a workload surpassing the 92 carries, 787 yards and eight touchdowns he totaled as a sophomore.

DEFENSE

A former defensive coordinator for the Warriors, coach Rob Gilstrap has to be excited to return nine starters from a defense that allowed just under 22 points per game on the way to a quarterfinal appearance. The Warriors blew through District 2A-8 totaling a perfect 90 point differential in district play last season. This season a move to District 2A-4 will include familiar faces in Wyandotte, Nowata, and Chelsea in district action. The secondary will be led by free safety Bradbury, 116 tackles and four interceptions in 2017, and Long at strong safety. The defensive line will be bookended by Lucas Hendrex (5-9, 210, Jr.) and Borin. Last season, Hendrex totaled 40 tackles including four for loss and three sacks. Borin was a beast as a sophomore with 78 tackles, five for loss, to go with six sacks and two fumble recoveries. Keep an eye on Gunnar Rader (5-10, 205, Jr.) and Hines at linebacker.
