2016 record: 7-3
Head coach: Dan Ericson
Returning players: C/DL Collin Deutscher, senior; FB-LB Tyler Vandergriff, senior; SB/DB Karsten Martinson, senior; SB/DB Jerikho Presley, senior.
Key newcomers: FB/DL Cooper Martinson, junior; QB John Hartford, junior; QB Chase Templeton, junior; SB/LB Tanner Weaver, junior; OL/DL Ben Schnabel, junior.
Outlook: The high-flying Eagles graduated 29 players, an astoundingly high number at the 1A level. But the roster has been replenished with 20 freshmen signing up, boding well for the future of a program that had only 22 players when Ericson took over. The Eagles wide-open offense will be as entertaining as ever with returning players at key positions.

Outlook: Replacing Emily Peters, who has gone on to play Division I soccer at Montana, will not be easy, but the roster boasts plenty of young players with club experience.

Returning players: Taylor Fite, junior; Jacob Kraft, junior.
