Outlook: A 2-9 finish last year went down like sour milk. It was NewCath's first losing season in more than two decades. The Thoroughbreds have stuck to this motto since last fall: ''2-9, never again.''
How well NewCath rebounds is uncertain. It has just four starters returning on each side of the ball. Of the eight seniors, only two have varsity experience. Few skill positions boast experienced returnees.
''We do have above-average size in most spots,'' Schneider said. ''But it's a very young team.''
Junior Hank Bosley is the new QB and sophomore Steve Everson the new tailback. Everson was the heart of an undefeated freshman team last year.
Junior wideout/defensive back Ben Wrobleski is the best athlete. He caught 13 passes for 186 yards last year while making 43 tackles and two interceptions.
