Newark went 8-2 last season, winning the OCC. Amazingly, the Wildcats didn't make the playoffs, missing the cut at Division I by five-hundredths of a point.

A frustrating end to a great season, and Evans Boston tells us in this Coca-Cola Powerade Team Preview that this Newark team wants to do better than eight wins...they want 10. And with this team, that's not out of the question.

Even though it now costs $200 dollars for each kid to play football, head coach Mitch Bendle isn't worried about losing any players.
