Team Strength(s) for 2017:
With Dezmond Ambrose entering his third year as the starting quarterback for VCP, this makes the offensive side of the ball the teams strength. The third year signal caller have a few experienced skill guys with him and some young talent within the skill position as well.
Biggest Shoes / Holes to Fill in 2017:
VCP will be looking to replace most of its secondary with Charles McAdoo as the lone starter returning for that unit. LB's will be anchored by freshman LB Quentin Johnson who has yet to prove himself at this level.
2017 Season Outlook:
2017 we will be focusing on gaining valuable game experience for our young talent and and putting our seniors in position to lead.
Outlook on Conference/Division:
With this being our first year in the Michigan Metro Athletic Conference (Blue Division), we know it's going to be tough. River Rouge is atop of the division but I see us falling in that next tier of team competing for a league championship.
