Coach: Bud McSuley
Although Girard isn't the most experienced team around, they are solid at two of the most important positions. Senior RB Kyle Stadelmyer has rushed for 2,800 yards and 47 TDs over the past two years and will again carry a big load. QB Adam Charles, who has started since he was a freshman, threw for almost 2,000 yards last season and should be even better this fall. There are question marks up front and at the linebacker position (no returning starters), so the Indians need their younger players to step up quickly if they want to contend for a league crown.
