Head Coach: Paul Padalino

Last Year’s record: 5-5

Returning offensive starters: 5

Returning defensive starters: 7

Likely toughest opponent: Bishop McNamara

Offensive strengths: skill positions

Offensive weaknesses: inexperience on line

Defensive strengths: linebacker

Defensive weaknesses: inexperience on line

Offensive outlook: The Bears have two solid QBs in Phil Pena and Kyle Hartman but don’t expect a quarterback controversy here. Pena, a senior, saw significant playing time last year. Hartman, a junior, also played on the varsity team last season. Myles Allen and Peter Laco are both talented running backs. Allen earned All-IAC honors last season. Jackson Howard and Austin Teddy should both contribute at the tight end position.

Defensive outlook: The Bears defense features a pair of stalwarts in Howard and Teddy along with Laco roaming the secondary. Teddy, a junior who transferred from DeMatha, and Howard, a senior, should contribute on the defensive line and from the outside linebacker position according to Padalino.

Special teams: Look for Matt Underhill to handle the placekicking duties and Mike Rhoads to do the punting chores.

Coach’s comments: “Our goal is to compete for the IAC championship. That’s always our goal. Hopefully we can get it done this year.”

Scouting report: The schedule includes Bishop McNamara, Georgetown Prep, Bullis and St. Alban’s so it won’t be easy by any stretch of the imagination. If the Bears can get leadership from their more experienced players then the sky is the limit.

Break away potential: Allen is among the IAC’s top players and should be able to carry the team on his back along with Howard and Teddy. Pena is an experienced signal-caller so expect this team to make a serious run for the league title.
