Olathe Northwest Ravens


Second verse, same as the first. Much like its Western counterpart, Lee's Summit North excelled early against lesser competition before bowing out to tougher competition in the second half of the season. A case could be made that they were just unlucky enough to play the Class 5 State Runner-Up and the Class 6 State Champs in consecutive weeks. Nobody could blame a team for getting down after two blowout losses regardless of the teams played.

To make matters worse, the Broncos now have the task of finding a new leader at QB. The top candidate for the job is future SR QB Caleb Anston who saw time in 7 games where he managed 360 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions along with a 46% completion rate. Those numbers won't impress anybody but the foundation is there for a big offseason that also includes the return of RB Tori Hicks and his team-leading 907 yards rushing. If these two can find a spark before the 2016 opener, the Broncos should be a viable threat to the Ravens in Week 3.
