The Skinny: A new coach­ing staff, a new quar­ter­back, even a new look at Good­man Sta­dium have Le­high fans cu­ri­ous and ex­cited to see what 2019 will look like after a dis­mal 3-8 in 2018. New head coach Tom Gil­more has a team that could be a work-in-progress, es­pe­cially on of­fense. The de­fense has more ex­pe­ri­ence and has em­braced Gil­more’s tough mind­set and ag­gres­sive phi­los­o­phy. St. Fran­cis lacks proven skill peo­ple on of­fense and could be ripe for turnovers. The Red Flash de­fense could be more formidable.

Keith Groller’s pre­dic­tion: Le­high 24, St. Fran­cis 14.
