Once again Grosse Ile will have a high powered offense but the question remains, "can the Red Devils stop anyone?" Coach John Bodner returns multiple weapons from last season's 4-5 team but will need the defense to step up if they hope to compete for the Huron League Championhip.
Offensively, the Islanders will be led by two of the best offensive players in the league. Rob White was a unanimous All League choice last season after throwing for 1,689 yards and 16 TD's while rushing for 547 yards and another 16 TD's. Alex Kish is a solid RB with both size and speed that rushed for 730 yards and 9 TD's in just seven games.
Defensively, the Red Devils gave up 38 ppg last season and will need to cut that number in half if they hope to compete for the league title and a playoff spot. Senior LB Corey Graff will lead the defense along with veterans Vince and Joe Alongi.
Grosse Ile opens the season with tough LCAA and Division V state power Onsted. The Wildcats finished 8-2 last season and have won 45 games over the last 5 seasons. An opening night victory for the Islanders could propel them to a special season.
