Last Season: 14-0, Won Class AA State Championship

Returning Starters: 7 O, 5 D

Player to Watch: Owen King, QB

There is absolutely, positively no surprise at the top of Class AA this offseason. Two-time defending champion Caledonia warrants the No. 1 ranking, and in all likelihood, the Warriors would be the top team if they bumped up to Class AAA too.

Owen King headlines seven offensive starters who return for the Warriors in 2017. King is undefeated (28-0) as a starting quarterback, having already thrown for 5,300 yards and 92 touchdowns in his two varsity seasons. His two favorite targets from last season – Andrew Goergen and Jordan Burg – both return, as well as three offensive linemen.

The Warriors defense has a few more holes to fill, especially in the trenches. Brent Robley returns at tackle, but the loss of Ezekiel Ott and two other linemen could make them more vulnerable against the run next season.
