ARGENTA -- The Bombers were one of the most explosive teams around in 2016, averaging 41.2 points per game. Several key play makers return this season, which should make first year head coach Steve Kirk's squad one of the teams to beat in the Little Okaw.
The Bombers are loaded in the backfield with the talented trio of Skyler Peterson, Makhi Stanley, and Makail Stanley. Other key returners include Braxton Norman (WR/CB), Colton Robinson (SS/WR), Trevor Webb (MLB, G), and Devin Camfield (DT, T) to name a few. Sophomore Josh Williams steps in at quarterback.
