Poggiali (1,800 passing yards last year) and Jefferies (800 yards receiving, three INTs) have a chance to set school records for passing and receiving yards, respectively. Smith returns after posting solid numbers a year ago (400 yards receiving, 59 tackles, three INTs). Sandusky also joins the Northern Ohio League this year and has a new non-league opponent in Ashland.
