Crown Point Bulldogs

Inside the Bulldogs

Last season: 8-4

Returning starters: 14 (4 offense, 10 defense)

Returning offensive leader

Jake Jatis, Sr., QB. (149-of-270 for 1,941 yards, 13 TDs).

Returning defensive leader

Connor Andras, Sr., LB. (84 tackles, 5 sacks, 4 TFL, 3 fumble recoveries, 3 INT.).

Everybody's All-American

Jake Jatis, Sr., QB. When schools like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Notre Dame, Cornell, Penn and Austin Peay are on you, you must be doing something right. Tall and athletic with a whip for an arm, major colleges are waiting to see how his senior year progresses.

He's got next

Tyler Downing, Sr., RB. With a lot of openings in the O, this quick, hard-nosed runner and blocker should have a great senior year. "When you see him walk down the hallway you just know he's a good football player," coach Kevin Enright said.

The Times' breakdown

The 'Dogs offense is inexperienced, but with returning Jatis and Tristan Peterson (1,066 yards, 7 TDs), the cupboard isn't bare. C.P. made it to the sectional championship last year and has 10 returning starters back on defense. "We've had some really strong (defensive) groups in the past, but we've never had anything like this group," Enright said. Only one full-time offensive starter returns on the O line. Enright believes in the group coming in. "They just need to get some experience and create their own identity. If we stay healthy this could be a very good group," he said.
