Head Coach: Dave Mencarini

Last Year’s Record: 13-1

Returning offensive starters: 6

Returning defensive starters: 8

Likely toughest opponent:  Sherwood

Offensive strengths: skill positions

Offensive weaknesses: inexperience on line

Defensive strengths: linebacker, secondary

Defensive weaknesses: inexperience on line

Offensive outlook: QB Mikey Murtaugh will lead an offensive unit that features bruising fullback Tyrell Williams and talented WR Matt Choi.

Defensive outlook: Nebraska commit Marcus Newby, a three-year starter, is the ringleader of the defense along with lineman Kieran Gregory who has orally committed to Richmond. Williams and Carlo St. Regis are also talented linebackers. Kyle Gregory is among four returning players in the secondary.

Special teams: Bailey Avissar returns to handle the punting duties for QO and Jake Barkdoll will handle kickoffs and extra points.

Coach’s comments: “I think we’re going to be a good team but I think it’s going to be several weeks until we’re polished. With the reduced number of practices it really impacted our skill so we’re going to take some time to develop.”

Scouting Report: Williams will be tough to handle for opposing defenders so the Cougars have a useful weapon to unleash on offense. The defense features one of the nation’s top linebackers in Newby.

“He’s fantastic,” said Mencarini. “He’s awesome. That’s why he’s going to Nebraska. He’s the real deal.”

Break away potential: Mencarini has built the program into one of the state’s finest with college coaches licking their chops at potential prospects. This year is certainly no different. Although the schedule includes Sherwood, Paint Branch, Northwest, Seneca Valley, Clarksburg and Gaithersburg, the Cougars should earn yet another postseason berth.
