By STARS AND STRIPES Published: August 31, 2017
2015 season record — 0-7 overall, forfeited last two games of 2015 season due to injuries and lack of players; did not play football in 2016.
Head coach — Robert Penry, first season; Don Tusha, third season.
Returning players from 2015 — 2.
Returning starters — 1.
Key performers — Corin Roger, Jr., WB; Gabe Rouse, Sr., RB; Eric Martinez, Sr., LB; Jesse Davis, Jr., RB; Isaiah Conlin, Fr., QB; Carson Nugent, So., L.
Strengths — Small, but talented core of players; Tusha calls it the most talented group he’s had on his three-season watch. Some interior size.
Drawbacks — No depth to speak of. A couple of injuries away from being in the same boat the Cougars were two years ago. Having just five games for now doesn’t help.
Overview — Starting all over again. After a one-year hiatus due to lack of players, Cougars have nowhere to go but up.
