* Outlook –
Head coach Dick Leonard begins his 27th year at Arlington and second as head coach. Last year, after 25 years as an assistant, Leonard led the Red Devils to their second straight and second ever playoff appearance. Arlington drew eventual state champion Delphos St. John’s in the first round. The pieces are there for a return to the postseason.

“We will have an experienced backfield on offense, however we need to replace several very good linemen,” Leonard said. “We will be in the same situation on defense. We have some experience in the backfield and at one LB, but will rely on some younger players to play in some key positions on the line and LB.”

Morehart was first team All-Northwest Ohio at RB last year. Kicking should also be a strength with the return of senior Levi Fennell.
