School: Rich Central
Head coach: Terrell Alexander
Assistant coaches: Quincy Woods - OC; Jeffrey Spikner - WR; Vincent Brown - OL; Jim Sokoloski - RB; Steven Hendley - LB; Lester Hampton - DB
How they fared in 2014: 4-5 (2-3 Southland Conference); The Olympians failed to make the state playoff field.
[MORE - 43 Days to Kickoff: St. Francis]
Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Olympians survive some new, big tests in nonconference play?
Names to watch: Desmond Reeves - a senior linebacker has D-1 athletic potential - and Franklin Hunt, a senior defensive back has speed and terrific tools for the college level.
Biggest holes to fill: The Olympians will bring back experience at several spots but the offensive skills will be very green in 2015.
EDGY's Early Take: The Olympians lost to five state playoff teams in 2014 and will need another strong effort in 2015. Rich Central has numbers and talent and getting a few early wins from the first three non-conference games is critical.
