Riser

Morris Kroma had to wait his turn in a very talented Hamilton secondary last year. Now he is a senior and expected to lead a defense that loses most of their starters and the entire secondary.

Up and Comer

Isaiah Pola-Mao is going to be a sophomore at Mt. Pointe but he didn’t look like it this off-season. At 6-4 180, he has the length to roam the middle.

Little Giant

Safety Tristan Decker plays much bigger then his size. Even at 5-9 170, he is a fearless tackler.
