2015 NIWOT COUGARS

COACH: Dylan Hollingsworth (1st year)

LAST YEAR: 0-10, 0-7 Class 3A Northern League.

RETURNING STARTERS: Blake Montgomery (Sr., OLB/QB/HB, 6-4, 230); Aaron Nicoll (Sr., WR/S, 5-9, 170); Alex Oelsner (Jr., DE/WR, 6-3, 220); Aidan Tollefson (Jr., WR/CB, 5-9, 160).

OTHERS TO WATCH: Zennon Baun (Sr., RT/LB, 6-2, 210); Fox Garza (Jr., C/NG, 5-11, 245); Cody Holliday (Jr., WR/S, 6-1, 190); Zach Kinnison (Jr., QB, 5-10, 185); Dallas Lackovic (Jr., S, 6-0, 145); Nicholas Lackovic (Jr. WR/CB, 6-0, 145); Andrew Pickner (Sr., TB/OLB, 5-11, 165).

DIVISION-I PROSPECTS: Montgomery, Oelsner, Tollefson, Nicoll.

MUST-SEE GAME: Oct. 30 vs. Frederick.

STRENGTHS: Whether it’s Kinnison or Montgomery who ends up playing quarterback, they have some hands-type guys to throw to. They also have a stable of running backs led by Pickner they believe can move the ball.

WEAKNESSES: Niwot scored 28 points last year and 148 points the year before. Doubling the scoring would still get them only to 20 points a game — which may win a couple but not a majority. The Cougars will need their defense to be lights-out.
