NORTH SAND MOUNTAIN BISON

Coach: Adam Gilbert (4-6 here and overall)

Returning starters (O/D/K): 7/8/0

Remember these names: Quarterback Tyler Vann (Jr., 6-2, 175) returns after throwing for 1,500 yards last year and has his favorite target, Max Kirby (Sr., 5-10, 180), back as well. Two-way lineman Corey Sims (Sr., 5-11, 210) has been a two-year starter, and free safety Zach Walsh (Sr., 5-11, 175) received all-state honorable mention last year after intercepting five passes.

Will be a memorable year if: A mostly veteran team learns to play with consistency. That was the biggest obstacle that prevented the Bison from qualifying for the playoffs last year.
