2017 Montini Catholic Broncos summer Camp/7on7 plans
Wheaton Warrenville So.
Top Impact Player for Montini Catholc in 2017? Senior QB/TE Matt Morrissey. Morrissey, along with senior QB Brad Norgle will be asked to provide leadership along with getting the Montini spread offense clicking this season. Morrissey, who is a big, tall and athletic kid will also see some PT t tight end when Norgle is under center.
Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Who is the go to guy for Montini Catholic? The Broncos on paper have talent and experience back, but this is also more of a blue collar group and the star power is a bit limited in 2017. So who steps up and becomes the go to guy on offense this fall?
EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 Montini Catholic Broncos?
Gone for 2017 is Hall of Fame head coach Chris Andriano who retired after last season. In steps long time Montini Catholic assistant coach Mike Bukovsky. The transition should go smoothly here since Coach Bu has been a part of this programs for years. Bukovsky also retained nearly every member of the Broncos coaching staff under Andriano. If Montini can get a handful of contributions from a strong underclassmen group they will again be in the state playoff threat in 2017.
