Coach: Patrick Mooney (second year)

Region: D South

Last year’s record: 4-5, lost in Class C South quarterfinals

Returning athletes: Seniors — Hunter Ames (T/ILB), Ian Brennick (G/ILB), Curtis Gauvin (T/DE), Camden Mason (C/DT), Tyler Murray (TE/DT), Cameron Payne (RB/CB), Nathan White (RB/CB); Juniors — William Bean (TE/LB), Jacob Blanchard (RB/CB), Avery Bradeen (FB/DE), Darrin Buono (G/DT).

Key losses: Peter Cogley (G/LB), Zach Duguay (G/LB), Kyle Farrar (RB/S), Todd McKellick (FB/LB), Nick Newman (RB/CB), Elijah Turner (RB/LB).

Promising newcomers:  Junior —  Ethan Laubauskas (RB/LB); Sophomores — Dylan Desroches (RB/S), Jasper Turner (RB/LB).

What to expect: The Falcons took a big competitive step in Class C in Mooney’s first season and should make an immediate impact in Class D with a roster loaded with two- and three-year starters. The offensive line is senior-laden and physical, while the defense returns nine of 11 starters. They’ve had a lot of turnover in the offensive backfield but those stepping in are athletic and ready to contribute. The defense will be more aggressive and hopes to create more turnovers.
