LINSLY- Heading into his 15th season guiding his alma mater, coach BJ Depew is not looking at the schedule as a negative but instead as a positive.

Linsly returns one of the most exciting players in the valley in senior Luca Dilorenzo, who can play quarterback, running back, or receiver.

Junior Alex Taylor returns as running back and defensive back. Juniors Mikey Troullos, Neri Weiner, and Kevin Stanisi are fighting for carries.
Junior Atley Cowan is a league race at quarterback.
They return just one offensive lineman in senior Aiden Christ. Seniors Landin Blakely and Debu Yi along with juniors Toni Malkki, Ray Kovalesky and sophomore Isaac Depew are battling for the other spots.
” I think the depth we have at wide receiver and running back is outstanding not just good numbers but good quality and it’s made for some great compition here during preseason.”BJ Depew – Head Coach

Kovalesky returns at linebacker and Wyatt Haynes on the defensive line.
” We’ve made really good use of our time, we’ve got a good bunch of kids in camp. I think were as athletic as we’ve been in a while you know were not quite as big,but the group of athletes is as exciting as I can remember.”BJ Depew – Head Coach
