Coach: Steve Amrine, second year
2011 record: 5-4, 5th in league.
Offense: Coordinator - Steve Amrine (pro set, spread). Returning starters - 3. Top players - QB Joe Blaser, 5-11, 165, jr.; RB Chuck McKeerver, 5-8, 230, sr.; WR John Sharkey, 6-2, 170, sr.
Defense: Coordinator - Brad White (multiple). Returning starters - 4. Top players - DL Jeff Carlisle, 6-2, 240, sr.; DL Alex Daarud, 6-0, 285, sr.; DB Jake Riccardo, 6-0, 185, sr.; LB Justice Tasby, 6-0, 200, sr.
Outlook: You knew after a season in which the Tigers averaged 10.1 points per game, Amrine would shake something up in the offseason. He did – and Centralia will run a two-scheme offense (pro set and spread) for the first time. A strength is the team’s offensive line. Each starter weighs at least 245 pounds. And Tasby is one of the best linebackers in the EvCo.
