Kubasaki Dragons

2017 season record — 1-6, 95 points for, 185 points against.
Head coach — Fred Bales, 14th season, Overall record 45-39, two D-I titles (2005, 2013).
Returning players — 7.
Returning starters — 7.
Key performers — Skyler Klimek, Sr., QB-WR-DB; Alvin Mack, Sr., QB-WR; Vincent Hill, Sr., RB; Hayden Williamson, Sr., LB-RB; Jaylan Penny, Sr., L; Haydn Peterson, Jr., L; Christopher Edwards, Sr., WR-QB-P; Lucas Kappen, Jr., L (transferred from Matthew C. Perry).
Strengths — Experience at skills positions.
Drawbacks — Lack of depth, lack of size, especially in the lines; should be plenty of players seeing ironman duty on both sides of the ball.
Overview — Rebuilding. Having just 30 players out is as few as the Dragons have had since the advent of the Far East playoffs in 2005. Plenty of potential for growth; injuries could set things back big.
