*St. Xavier (6-5, Region 4 quarterfinalist): The Bombers had to replace nine All-GCL performers last year and entered the season with some unknowns. This year X has to replace seven all-league players, but it brings back more answers than questions.

Senior QB Nick Tensing (6-4, 200) was first team All-GCL last year and spearheads on offense that also features all-league performers at RB (CJ Hilliard), WR (Ryan Frey) and OL (Rick Kurz). Tensing threw for 1,908 yards and 17 TDs last year, while Hilliard (5-11, 185), who has committed to Iowa, ran for 626 yards and nine TDs. Frey (6-1, 185) caught 29 passes for 496 yards and five TDs. Kurz (6-2, 260) anchors the line.

On defense, the Bombers return first team All-GCL senior DL Nick Carovillano (6-4, 230) who owns offers from Boston College, Miami (Oh.), Akron and Buffalo. Also back is a pair of standout juniors in LB Justin Hilliard (6-2, 210) and DE Simeon Lane (6-2, 290). Hilliard owns over 20 offers including Ohio State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas A&M. Illinois has offered Lane.

Junior LB Cole Jones (6-0, 210) is the team’s top returning tackler (65).

The schedule includes five Ohio teams (Colerain, Moeller, Elder, LaSalle and St. Ignatius) and five out-of-state schools.
