Biggest storyline: Can the Reapers reload?
Names to watch this season: Senior DB Mauricio Perez Senior DB Alec Chavez
Biggest holes to fill: The Reapers will need to replace 20 graduated starters from a season ago, and that group also included several multi-year starters for Plano.
EDGY's Early Take: The Reapers no question have work to do this summer, yet head coach Brad Kunz and staff always finds a way for Plano to compete in the Interstate 8 conference and beyond.
