ROGERS -- The backfield will definitely look different for Rogers Heritage this season.

The Skinny

Position Battle: Backfield

Biggest Strength: Joey Saucier, the senior has a scholarship offer from Air Force. … He supplies the War Eagles with a big-play threat every time he touches the ball thanks to his speed.

Biggest Question Mark: Quarterback. … Three-year starter Josh Qualls graduated and now four different candidates are vying for the job. … Coaches have said they could even use a two-quarterback system.

Watch Out For: senior Dylan Wright. … The converted offensive lineman lines up at fullback when the War Eagles use a two-back set. … He runs hard, blocks well and is also a receiving threat.
