The Milan Big Reds are out to prove to the entire league that their fourteen game league winning streak and two consecutive league championships is no fluke. The Milan roster only includes 10 seniors, but a strong junior class gives the Big Reds reason to think a three-peat is possible.
Offensively, Milan will be led by sophomore RB Trace Lindeman who rushed for over 1,200 yards and 11 TD's as a freshman. The QB will be junior E.J. Medvecz. The transfer from Ypsi Lincoln is listed at 6-2, 225 lbs. The Big Reds had to replace a bulk of their offensive line, but have some good young players in Max Protske and Cody Brassy-Brierley.
Defensively, Milan will boast three of the better defenders in the league. Senior C.J. Duffiney is back at at DB for the Big Reds along with junior LB Jordan Hendricks. Ypsi Lincoln transfer Cortez Gray will man another LB spot. Senior Ryan Faulkner will play defensive line and will be one of the best two way players in the league.
Milan made an effort to upgrade the non-league schedule this season which includes traditional football power Marshall and always powerful Detroit Country Day. Coach Jesse Hoskins has made a big name for himself in coaching circles and is known as a master motivator. Prediction 7-2
