Airport is coming off a season that saw them finish 1-8, but 4th year head coach Chad Baas should have reason for optimism. The Jets have had 3 straight losing seasons, but return several starters especially on the defensive side of the ball.
The Jet offense returns 5 starters. Aaron Frederick and Thomas Shinevarre are offensive lineman that will look to pave the way for returning RB's Mike Foor and Justin Goretski. Sophomore Bryce Bondy could supply a spark to the Airport offense after starring on the reserve team a year ago.
Airport boasts 8 returning defensive starters and are led by senior Brent Mossburg. All four starters return on the defensive line and are led by seniors Hunter Cleland and Dalton Bates. Juniors Logan Mays and Matt Ashby give the Jets one of the best front fours in the league.
Airport boast a large roster and have lots of experience returning and that should result in more wins. The Jets open on the road Friday at Dundee then will host Huron in week 2. Prediction: 3-4 League, 5-4 Overall
