OUTLOOK

A three-win team last year? Given that the Trojans have arguably the two best breakaway athletes in DeWalt and Johnson, that record seemed a little off the mark.

Considering that Olympic only graduated three seniors who saw significant playing time, you could chalk it up to youth -- which makes this year's core group all the more dangerous.

DeWalt will spend more time in the backfield, and has shown more of a knack this offseason to take on contact in the hole, and not try to elude it.

If Gillick can be more of an efficient mid-range passer, that will certainly make Johnson and DeWalt more effective up the field -- and the Olympic offense that much more explosive.
