Coach's comments: "I have to make a decision at quarterback as quickly as possible because I don't want to go through pre-season without a starter being named. The key to defense will be filling those holes (at end and linebacker) quickly."

The Carroll County Sun's outlook: Gettysburg's defense gave up an average of 345 yards per game last year, and improving that is a key to an improvement on the record this season. The Bullets were among the top teams inthe Centennial Conference in the loop's early years, but has struggled in league play the past few years. Most of the returnees are on defense, though, so Gettysburg will have plenty of experience when the other team has the ball. The team returns just one starter on the offensive line, though, but if that group matures quickly, the Bullets have some talent in the backfield. Gettysburg, traditionally a grind-it-out, run-oriented team, had an outstanding passing attack last year, but will be inexperienced at both quarterback and receiver.
