How they fared in 2015: 9-2 (5-1) Upstate 8 (River) Conference. Geneva made the Class 7A state playoff field and defeated Oswego East before losing to Bradley in second round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Vikings reload in 2016?
Names to watch this season: RB Lance Arni, WR/DB Noah Davison
Biggest holes to fill: The Vikings feature just one returning starter this season in S/RB Lance Arni.
EDGY's Early Take: If any program can reload it's the Geneva Vikings. While the Vikings will be green in several spots the talent level overall seems to be a constant. Look for Geneva to again be in the upper tier of the Upstate 8 River conference this fall.
