Lake Central Indians

Inside the Indians

Last season: 8-3

Returning starters: 12 (5 offense, 7 defense)

Returning offensive leader

Brandon Scott, Jr., RB. (49 carries, 238 yards, 5 TDs).

Returning defensive leader

Gelen Robinson, Sr., LB. (95 tackles, 47 TFL, 13 sacks, 29 hurries, 5 forced fumbles).

Everybody's All-American

Gelen Robinson, Sr., LB. The Purdue-bound manchild can do it all, but coach Brett St. Germain wants more. "Gelen needs to let his teammates know he's playing for them," he said. "That's the next big step. That's the sign of someone great, having an impact on all those around."

He's got next

Antwan Davis, Jr., WR. Last year he had 12 catches for 134 yards. Those numbers should rise. "Antwan has big-play potential," St. Germain said. "He doesn't just run by people. He makes tough catches and gets open."

The Times' breakdown

David Yancey is at Purdue so much of L.C.'s offense is, too. The Indians must have more people involved and score more points. Alec Olund has held on to the quarterback spot and he'll be counting on a good group of receivers to step up. Robinson's massive frame will carry the ball this year, which could be dangerous. A strong defense returns and should be like a brick wall. Back-to-back eight-win seasons have been impressive, but St. Germain and staff want more. "The mark of success is what you do during tournament time," he said. "Relative to where our program had been, 8-2 and 8-3 is pretty good. But we should be a team making noise in the tournament. We haven't been there yet. Bigger things are in front of us. That's what we're chasing."
