This is the sixth part in Northstar Football News' profiles of teams who might surprise in the 2017 season. From now until August 31, we will attempt highlight a "sleeper" team from each level that we believe will have a bounce back year this fall after finishing with a .500 or worse record in 2016.

NFN's 2017 2A sleeper: Barnum Bombers

2016 Record: 1-7

Returning starters: Quinn Casey RB/LB, Jordan Siekirt OL/DL, Colton Zambory OL, Tyler Nynas QB.DB, Ryan Weller OL, Sam Goodwin OL/DL, Nathan Moors OL/DL, Jared Haley TE, Jordan Haley, Noah Parker LB, Dakota Litfin DB, Jacob Nynas LB, Ryan Weller DL

With starting quarterback Tyler Nynas and all five starting linemen returning, the Bombers are sure to improve on their one win record from last season. They also have the mindset to do it.

"This team has worked hard in the offseason and is hungry to get back to winning," Bombers' head coach Mike Klyne said. "A very young core is coming of age, and a lot of experience as freshmen and sophomores is playing a huge role in their preparation for this season."
