Coach: Dan Teeter (12th season)
Key players: Jon Cox III, sr., WR/DL; Austin Lane, sr., QB/DB; Spencer Neiffer, jr., RB/LB
Outlook: The Cougars took some lumps last fall during their inaugural season in the Northwest Conference, suffering through their first losing campaign since 2009.

Also back is 6-foot-5 senior receiver and defensive end Jon Cox III.
