Much like the SFL, there is a stark difference in success among the teams scheduled. A couple teams excelled while others struggled among themselves for wins. Park Hill is one of the upper-tier teams. The Trojans had the misfortune of opening the season against Blue Springs South (14-0) who went on to win the Missouri Class 6 State Championship. Despite the loss, Park Hill did manage to be one of only three teams to lose by less than 7 points against Blue Springs South last season.

Things heated up as the Trojans blasted their way through the rest of the their schedule and the playoffs until bowing out to eventual Class 5 champions Fort Osage (13-1) in the quarterfinals. Park Hill returns a ton of talent which is led on the offensive side by future JR QB Billy Maples who threw for a wild 2231 yards with a 19-4 TD:INT ratio and a QBR of 111.2. The defensive side won't be hurting much either, as it returns both its top tackler (Seven Wilson with 185 Total Tackles; 86 Solo) and a pair of DE's that combined for 18 of the team's 61* sacks.

Key Players Returning:*

SR QB Billy Maples: Passing - 2231 yds., 19 TD's, 4 INT's, 111.2 QBR

SR LB Seven Wilson: Defensive - 185 Tackles (86 Solo)
