Thoughts: The steady rise in numbers of players at the youth level will pay dividends for the Falcons. While the team will miss several supremely talented graduating seniors, this year’s team returns several players who made last season’s honor roll, plus a group of promising freshmen who’ll see significant playing time. Once they get experience playing at this level, the Falcons could be a team to underestimate at your own risk.
