Season outlook: Pius X offensively has three linemen that have extensive starting and playing experience.  Defensively, the Thunderbolts have to fill more positions due to graduation, but there is experience at the linebacker and defensive back positions.  There are a number of talented but inexperienced players that will have to step up and fill important roles.
