2017 season record — 4-3 overall, 114 points for, 173 points again.
Head coach — Blake Sims, third season.
Returning players — 7.
Returning starters — 7.
Key performers — Elijah Bembischew, Sr., OT-DT; Sam Murphy, Sr., RB-QB-MLB; Ethan Rodriguez, Sr., RB-QB (transferred from Stuttgart, Germany); Michael Bobadilla, Jr., QB-RB-WR-DB; Jaden Nava, Fr., WR-DB; Jacob Barry, Jr., WR-LB-Rover; Nikolai Champaco, Jr., OL-DL-PK.
Strengths — Size in the line gives the quarterbacks an extra second or two to throw.
Drawbacks — Lack of numbers and depth throughout roster, many players learning new positions. Quarterback job still up in the air.
Overview — Rebuilding. Plenty of progress made in the few weeks the team’s been together, but the players for the most part are new to football except for just a few. If they can get it together, Daegu could challenge for the Far East Division II title.
