With seven victories and a win in the first round of the postseason, it was a banner year for Oskaloosa. Andrew Landgrebe and the running game had a lot to do with their winning ways but his graduation will leave plenty of carries for their returners to step into. Nate VanVeldhuizen will likely get first crack at it as this varsity veteran totaled over 500 yards on the ground as a junior. He is one of the most experienced athletes on the Indians and will to step up early on as a leader for this group. Expect their three returning starters along the line to help him and others move the chains. Struggles defensively meant that this club gave up on average 30 points a night and that is a number that must be improved on heading into 2014. Riley Coniglio, Ki-Jana DeJong, Max Johnson, Jimmy Brown, and VanVeldhuizen all will be thrust into larger roles on this side of the ball and their ability to step up is a must early in the year. They may have holes to fill on paper but the core returning leaves this team as one that will not suddenly struggle when the season kicks off.
