Coach: Bill County (11th year)

Last year’s record: 6-3, lost in Eastern A quarterfinals

Returning players: Seniors — Cody Dussault (RB/WR/LB), Jeff Keene (TB/DB), Ben Wigant (G/MLB), Elliott Chicoine (T/DT); Juniors — Matt Therrien (TB/slot/DB), Jeff Turcotte (FB/DE).

Key losses: Ronnie Turner (QB), Seth Mason (QB), Andy Pulk (TB/DE), Tyler Nunez (FB/LB), Kris Gagne (OL/DL), Peter Blais (WR/DB), Eddie Chan (FB/DL).

Promising newcomers: Senior — Abdi Osman (WR/DB); Junior — Chris Madden (QB), Joe McKinnon (FB/LB)

Outlook: The Blue Devils are green in some key spots, but still should be at or near the top of the PTC South. They spent an uncharacteristic amount of the last two years throwing the ball, but a return to the run-first style County’s teams are known for isn’t out of the question. Keene is the speedy lead back, but Turcotte, Therrien and McKinnon will contribute to the ground game, too. Madden takes over at quarterback and has an intriguing target in Osman. Wigant anchors a fast, swarming defense.

Coach’s comment: “We’re very young. I think we have only seven seniors on the team and five are starting.” — Coach Bill County.
