The Vikings bring back 8 starters on each of the ball this season, who cut their teeth last year. Now with a year of playing time in their back pocket, the results are showing.

“Line plays both on offensive and the defensive side of the ball. The guys got after it real well, understand their assignments, and have pretty decent size.”

“Lot more expectations than we did last year. More experience, we can do greater things, definitely getting to the section championship game. That's what everyone's thinking about here.”
