Despite graduating 24 seniors and only eight returning lettermen, Coach Gray was optimistic with his vastly improved off-season weight program. Again his team excelled at home with a 3-1-1 record. The QB position was unsettled between Scott Oxley, Todd Wait, and Brent Thompson. The team pulled off a dramatic Homecoming upset against New Philly and ended a 12-year drought against the Quakers, even though six players were suspended for the game. The MVP was Scott Valentine. The top linemen were Gary Kiplinger and Dave Crecelius. Top back Dan Boucher rushed for 477 yards and 2 TDs.
