The Flying Eagles can line up several of their basketball standouts at skill spots, including quarterback (Brent Osborne), running back (Chase Hancock) and wideout (Donte Nabors).
The Generals return their starting quarterback (Toby Show), leading receiver (Chris Turner) and get back a top ball carrier (Colt Richardson) who sat out 2012 with a knee injury.
"We have a lot of areas of weakness and a lot of areas of unknown,'' Winfield coach Craig Snyder said earlier this month. "We don't know what we're going to be like up front. There are some young linemen, some sophomores, we need to step up for us, and some juniors we need to step up for us. Everything always looks good on paper, but we've got a long way to go in terms of figuring out who can do what.''
Loftus ran for 797 yards and 11 TDs, Crone had 532 yards and 11 scores and Brown threw for 610 yards and seven TDs.
The Huskies have two QBs who started last year - Brenden Holbrook and Tyler Americo. They also return running back Shaun Dotson (716 yards, six TDs), who doesn't mind working with two quarterbacks.
"I'm ready for anything that comes at me,'' Dotson said. "They both know where I'm going and know how to hand off to me and stuff. They're used to me running the ball.''
Most of that yardage graduated, however, and Sissonville has moved its top receiver (Nathan Miller) to quarterback. Miller had eight TD catches last year.
The Tigers also lost a lot of their skill players, but do return top receivers Brady Cox (34 catches, 498 yards, five TDs) and Zac Casto.
Both teams bring back a lot of experience, with Logan returning starters at 17 of 22 positions and the Hillbillies 15 of 22.
