Coach: Matt Gegenheimer, second year
The lowdown: Gegenheimer's emphasis in his first year was defense, and it paid off. That will be the key again this season, as the Lakers have only seven returning starters.
Coach: Bubba Sullivan, 19th year
The lowdown: The Raiders lack experience, especially on offense, and that is not a good situation in this hard-nosed conference. Sullivan will count on his physical defensive unit, led by seniors Cory Callahan (6-2, 280, T) and Josh Samuels (6-3, 210, SS) and junior Cole Jirik (6-4, 210, TE).
Red Wing Wingers
Coach: Kevin Horvat, first year
The lowdown: A new coach and a change of philosophy are in place. The Wingers will try to control the ball with a punishing ground attack. The defensive unit will go from a 4-3 front to a 3-5 look.
Coach: Jody Stone, second year
The lowdown: The Sabers will look to improve their offensive attack after being shut out in more than half of their games last year.
