Season Outlook:

The Orioles will be an independent this season as they await their likely return to the CAAC in 2017.  So they'll play a hodgepodge of teams from all over the state this season.

Fourth-year head coach Jeff Finney has eight starters coming back from a disappointing season best by injuries.  But coach Finney really likes his offensive line, and he's got a rock in junior right tackle John O'Brien.

The loss of all-purpose back Sy Barnett to transfer will hurt, but if the other skill players come around, they have a shot at the postseason.
