Coach: Mike McGraw (28th year)

 Last year’s record: 9-3-3, lost in Eastern A quarterfinal

 Returning letter winners: Seniors — Caleb Leino (F), Curtis Robinson (MF), Jon McDonough (MF), Ali Hersi (MF/F), Shobow Saban (F), Joe Sullivan (FB), Tyler Hartman (MF/FB), Eric Morin (MF), Scott Ouellette (G).

Key losses:  Ahmed Abdirahman (FB), JJ Musse (MF), Matt Beauparlant (MF), Chris Jacques (G), Subeer Osman (SK), Kyle Rousseau (FB), Kurtis Stocker (SK), Keagan Cote (FB), Ahmed Mohamed (SK), Dave Ouellette (FB), Mason Gates (G), Abdullahi Omer (FB), Ahmed Mohamed (F).

Promising newcomers: Seniors — Eric Hall (F/MF), Chase Cote (MF), Ryan Lemelin (FB); Juniors  — Benji Saban (F), Dahir Muktar (F), Ibrahim Achekh (F); Sophomore  —  Eric Soucy (G); Freshman — Yusuf Yama (MF/F) .

Outlook: The Blue Devils lost a wealth of talent and experience from last year. Hersi, an all-state pick, leads the nine returning players. Lewiston should have speed up front and experience in back, led by Robinson and Sullivan. Ouellette should step in nicely for Jacques in goal.

 Coach’s comment:

 “If the Blue Devils stay healthy and play well as a team, they can hang well in a very deep and competitive KVAC. If the newcomers gain valuable experience and we have outstanding team play, we can make the playoffs and then see how far this group can go.”  — Coach Mike McGraw
