COLLEGE PROSPECTS: Atkins, Conilogue, David.

MUST-SEE GAME: Oct. 5 vs. Frederick.

STRENGTHS: The Tigers return seven starters on offense and six on defense, so experience won’t be an issue. The defensive line is particularly stout.

WEAKNESSES: If there is a place where the Tigers are thin on experience, it’s the defensive secondary. The young unit will have to jell quickly to meld cohesively with the front seven.
