ADM, Adel

Head Coach - Garrison Carter

Last year’s record: 2-5

Top Returners: SO. Brevin Doll QB/LB, SR. Lucas Ray WR/SS, SR. Matt Dufoe QB/LB, SR. Gabe Heitz LB/FB.

Outlook: They will look to return a team that lost some key seniors but also will count on the juniors from last year as they look to improve on a record that was not great last year. The district is a competitive one that ADM hopes to be very aggressive in.

Atlantic

Head Coach - Jay Robinson

Last year’s record: 7-2

Top Returners: SR. Garrett McLaren QB/SS, JR. Caden Anderson QB, SR. Ayden Brown RB/LB.

Outlook: Atlantic was a senior led team last year, and with a lot of those seniors leaving it will be up to the rising juniors and seniors to take over this year and keep the Trojans rolling in the district.

Creston

Head Coach - Brian Morrison

Last year’s record: 1-7

Top Returners: JR. Kyle Strider QB/SS, SR. Briley Hays RB/LB, SR. Derek Paup WR/LB, JR. Gannon Greenwalt RB/CB.

Outlook: Creston will try and improve on their record in this highly competitive district. They will have to be aggressive and physical and some of their top players last year have graduated and moved on.

Harlan

Head coach - Todd Bladt

Last year’s record: 11-1

Top Returners: JR. Teagon Kasperbauer QB, JR. William Kenkel TE, SR. Connor Frame WR, JR. Aidan Hall WR/SS, SR. Joseph Fah QB/CB, SR. Jameson Bieker DE.

Outlook: Harlan will look to return to the championship game in 3A this year as they return the core of their team after going 11-1 last year. Winning in the district should be a main priority but as the season goes on they will be looking for that ultimate goal of returning to the playoffs and winning state. They will be a force in this district.

Saydel

Head Coach - Austin Stubbs

Last year’s record: 4-5

Top Returners: SR. Judd Roberts QB, SR. Austin Chally SS/RB, SR. Ryan Nelson WR/SS, SR. Trevor Lause LB/TE, SR. Gavin Godwin OT/DT.

Outlook: Saydel looks to improve on a just below .500 record last year as they worked and improved this offseason. They lost some starters and will return some key starters but nonetheless they want to show what they can do in district play.
