Hobart Brickies

Inside the Brickies

Last season: 8-3

Returning starters: 10 (5 offense, 5 defense)

Returning offensive leader

Andrew Barras, Sr., QB. 81-of-151 for 1,155 yards, 6 TDs; 11 rushes, 116 yards, 1 TD.

Returning defensive leader

Noah Smith, Jr., LB. 59 tackles, 2.5 TFL

Everybody's All-American

Andrew Barras, Sr., QB. Born and bred for this position, a big part of Hobart's turnaround season last fall. Great arm and great leadership. Should have a great season for a young team.

He's got next

Noah Smith, Jr., RB/LB. If you don't know this name now, you will. Emotional leader with a lot of physical ability. Will be a factor on both sides of the ball.

The Times' breakdown

The defending NCC champs turned the corner last year and had a 21-12 lead at halftime against Mishawaka in the sectional and the Cavemen wound up in the state final game. That's how close this team was. Only one offensive linemen returns, but a big and talented sophomore class could fill the holes. "They don't have the whiskers yet, but with a little experience they will," Turley said. "We're young and it might take us a couple of weeks to get in a groove." Barras has three years of experience behind center, so the leadership is there. Some young talent is ready to keep it going in the right direction. "I feel good where the chemistry is at," Turley said. "The kids are working hard and they are proud that we turned it around last year. We want to carry it over to every Friday night this year."
