Coach: Stacen Doucette (fifth year)

Conference: South Class: D

Last year’s results: 11-0, Class D state champions

Returning players: Seniors — Adam Mooney (T/DT), Gavin Chasse (C/DT), Matthew Strout (QB/DE), Steven Gilbert (Slot/DB), Peter Flaherty (DT), Austin Noble (DE/FB), Danny Buteau (WR/DB), Brian Thorpe (LB/RB). Juniors — Darryn Bailey (WR/S), Cruz Poirier (FB/LB). Sophomores — Reid Cote (OL/LB).

Key losses: Dalton Therrien (QB), Garrett Gile (C/NG), Levi Buteau (RB/LB), Austin Goucher (G), Brendon Tervo (G/MLB), Connor Elwell (T/S), Jonah Martin (WR/DB), Connor Nilsson (WR), Colby Spencer (RB/DB)

Promising newcomers: None for varsity team.

Season outlook: The losses of Therrien, Levi Buteau and some key linemen could prevent the Raiders from again finishing atop D South, but fellow region coaches aren’t counting them out. Doucette said the team’s strength is its role players, and that they will be more methodical.
