Coach Outlook: "High expectations for this upcoming season. Finished short last season of making a State run, losing to Defiance, the eventual State Champions. We didn't lose many players, so we have very high expectations."

PBR Outlook: The Bobcats have a talented group of seniors with a good mix of underclassmen as well. The Bobcats have talent in 2017, how far will that talent take them?
