LB SOPH Sammy Douglas District Newcomer of the Year
DB Shaquille Tate
DB JR Curtis Doughlas 78 tackles 9 TFL

Notes:
The Colts will battle for the 3rd or 4th playoff spot in 2010. Superstar WR Onyegbule may move to QB this season so the offense may need to rely on the defense led by LB Sanders. With 36 returning lettermen the Colts will have a lot of experience throughout so expect them to finish the regular season 7-3 or 8-2 and make it to the Area or Regional round of the playoffs. The match up with the teams from the "Little Southwest Conference" in bi-district play so that will be a tough round to get out of.
