League: Class A Division 1
Head coach: Mike Turgeon
Key players: Nick Madcharo (senior OL/DL), Jeff Moehle (senior RB/LB), Cody Rumney (junior QB/DB)
Outlook: With only five seniors on the roster, the Tartans will have to hope that their junior class can adjust to the varsity level quickly.
As far as skills, they're a talented group, said Turgeon. "Our big thing this year is to be competitive. We don't want to find ourselves down 42-0."
Playing in Division 1 won't make that goal easy to achieve. Among the teams in Scotia-Glenville's division are defending Class A champion Lansingburgh, Bishop Maginn and Troy, which dropped from Class AA.
"There's really a lot of depth in this division," said Turgeon. "You can't look ahead, and you can't look behind.""
