Coach: James Riley III
Offense: The Rapids return a lot of starters and aim to increase production (scored more than 20 points once last season) in their option-based attack. Junior quarterback Colby Scioscia (5-11, 195) will be one of the key components. Backs Anthony Scrivener and D.J. Logan are seniors. Scioscia’s passing targets will be junior Chris Seward, senior Gavin Morris and junior Jackson Rowe. The line of Myles Austin (5-8, 255), Aaron Turnage (6-1, 285), Elijah Mayo (6-1, 240), William Dixon (6-2, 245) and Jaellen Rose (5-11, 230) are all juniors.
>> Given the number of starters returning, improvement would be expected in Riley’s second season. They’ll have to narrow the scoring gap on both sides of the ball. Of the six teams on this year’s schedule, James River was only within one score of L.C. Bird (14-7) last season.
