Coach: Mark Bonnevie (ninth year)

Last year’s record: 3-5

Returning players: Seniors — Jordan D. Couture (RB/DB), Kyle Storer (TE/LB), Mat Ferland (C/LB), Matt Lancaster (G/NG); Juniors — Zach Bonnevie (QB/CB), Bill Calden (RB/LB), Andrew Stearns (FB/LB), Ron Holland (T/DT).

Key losses: Austin Clark (QB/DB), Jordan DeMillo (FB/LB), Tyler Dorr (OL/DL), Jared Ouellette (RB/LB).

Promising newcomers: Senior — Jordan  P. Couture (T/DT); Juniors — Nate Shink (WR/LB), Ryan Pelletier (LB), Jake Bessey (WR/CB).

Outlook: Jay’s numbers are up slightly to 28 players. That’s good news, because the Tigers’ depth may have been a factor in costing the team some second-half leads and ultimately preventing a playoff appearance for the second straight year. Calden and Couture give the Tigers a potent backfield, while Bonnevie takes over the QB spot with two handy targets, Storer and Bessey, at his disposal. There’s ample experience on the offensive line, too. Winning a couple of close games early in the season would give Jay both a big mental boost and a leg up in what promises to be another close Western C playoff race.

Coach’s comment: “Our strength is definitely up front and defensively. That’s where we have the most starters back.” — Coach Mark Bonnevie
