OFFENSE 

The 2017 Class B state champions are back and return plenty of talent to make another run at their 11th state title (91-2A, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 11, 15-C, 17-B). Head coach Troy Bullard is cautiously optimistic. 

“We have to outwork people and stay healthy throughout the year,” said Bullard. 

Gatlin Goodson (5-9, 170, Sr.) is a reason for the optimism. Goodson has the skills to lead the team to another title and the offensive line to help move people and make holes in the run game. Preston Thomazin (6-4, 265, Sr.) starts at guard giving the Indians an immovable force up front. Korbyn Schick (6-0, 280, Sr.) is another solid offensive lineman the Indians are counting on this season. Bralyn Hill (5-9, 195, Sr.) will benefit from having guys like Thomazin and Schick up front. Hill is a hard runner that never sidesteps contact. Damien Gibson (5-9, 175, Sr.) will start at tight end, while John Bay (6-1, 205, Jr.) will play wide receiver and/or running back.

DEFENSE 

Brendan Girton (6-2, 190, Jr.) joins Bay in the defensive secondary. Both guys are excellent cover guys and can step up and stop the run. Goodson will start at safety giving the Indians someone that can read and react to what the opposing quarterback is doing. Thomazin will play defensive end, while Hill and Gibson are two hard-hitting linebackers in the 3-2.This team returns a lot of experience, but depth and inexperience at a couple of spots is something coach Bullard and his staff are keeping a close eye on. Look for Shattuck to be in the hunt come December.
