Coach’s Comment: “We have a very small senior class returning, which is a concern.  The good news is that they have seen three amazing senior classes before them lead a team to commit to the expectations that are needed to win a championship.  We need to focus on getting ready for a tough Week 1 matchup at Bow followed by another grinder at John Stark in Week 2.  Kennett has a lot of All-Conference players returning and should be very good along with Hanover.  Gilford-Belmont took a huge step last year and I expect them to be much improved.   I see Bow as the team to beat in Division II North and possibly all of Division II. We have a lot of holes to fill so hopefully some boys will show up hungry and compete for spots.  Division II South looks to be very deep this year, and I would expect Alvirne to be on the top of that list with 25 seniors and so many returning starters.  Milford, Souhegan, St. Thomas and Hollis-Brookline all have the talent to make a run at the championship.”
