Coach: Dan Reardon (first season)
2011 Record: 2-8
Game to watch: Fairview, Aug. 30
It’s hard to pinpoint one game in particular because under new head coach Dan Reardon, Poudre is running an entirely new offense that should be less predictable. However, the season-opener against Fairview should be a good indicator. Fairview lost to eventual state-champions Columbine in the second round of the playoffs last fall.
Position Battle: The starting quarterback job is completely up for grabs, but senior Mike Jensen and junior Cody Limmer appear to have the edge. Both are tall, mobile quarterbacks who can get out of jams in a hurry.
