Coach: Rick Reynolds
Senior RB Eric Fleming, a 500-yard rusher, and junior TB Damian Pennington (who had a broken collarbone last year) return along with senior QB Anthony Pennington to form what should be a deep and talented group at the skill positions. The Pirates return 13 letterwinners but have just three starters back on offense, with guard Austin Sangston the only experienced player on the line. Defensively, four starters are back. The secondary should be the team's strength on that side of the ball.
