Three keys to the season
1. The Blue Aces hope for a turnaround from last season when they finished 2-7. Coffman will enter his third season and likes the senior class and the leadership that they bring.
2. East’s offense will be developed around the skill positions, but will lack numbers on the offensive line. The Blue Aces will have a lot of speed and Snell will provide the big spark in the running game. Wesley gives the offense athleticism and range on the outside at receiver.
3. The Blue Aces will be down in numbers on the defensive line as well, so look for the big guys to play almost every snap. East will have good speed in the secondary and on the outside, but that may not be enough if the line struggles.
