    OCath will need to replace their linebackers and a couple of DBs, but the rest of the returning positions are solid. The strong senior class will have some talented sophs and juniors stepping up to fill in. Offense should keep rolling with wr Nick Mills, rb Vonn Williams, and rising junior QB Drew Hartz. The question marks are on defense, which will be led by Noah Todd. Tough first half of the schedule with DC, Evansville Memorial, and OHS.

    I read last week that Coach Edge was tempted to move Williams to linebacker (that would address part of the problem you listed). If that happens, he'll share time on offense with Harold Hogg won't he? Hogg seems to be more than capable of taking over the running game for the aces. Can he catch the ball as well as Williams though? How about Catholic's line? They were a bit undersized last year. That seems to be a worry. I have always heard that Hartz knew the Catholic Offense like the back of his hand. I guess we will all see how well he knows the O. The question I have is does he have the arm that Warren had? If the answer is yes, Catholic should be able to score with anyone. But, as you said, with problems on defense, if you are having problems stopping other teams, you'll have to put up huge offensive numbers every night. Might not be a problem to win the district but to go deep in the playoffs, you are going to need to be able to stop people. As always looking forward to the 3rd game of the season, should be interesting to say the least.

    The biggest question marks will be how much has the oline improved and who will step up to be linebackers. They entire oline is returning which should help the running game tremendously. They will have weapons with Williams, Mills, Hogg, Hagan Edge, and Hamilton. Hartz should be much improved this year with some starts under his belt and a whole offseason of it being his team. You could tell at times last year the arm strength was there but some timing and decision making plaqued him some. As far as the defensive side of the ball I expect them to struggle some early especially with their schedule but like always Coach Edge will get it working.
