Nebraska Prep Zone Omaha World-Herald

Leading up to the Nebraska high school football season, NEPrepZone.com will be looking at the top teams in each class, based on last season’s final rankings. First up, Eight Man-2 is in the spotlight with a new post each day. Let us know in the comments how you think each team will finish, as well as the players you’ll be watching.

* * *

SHELTON
Coach: Mike Lowe
Last season: Lost 60-20 in state semifinals to eventual-champion Giltner.

KEY DEPARTURE
Luke Glenn, RB: Glenn set single-season school records in rushing yards (2,009), rushing touchdowns (36) and total touchdowns (41) as a senior last season.

ON OFFENSE
Replacing Glenn’s 220 carries from last season will be a daunting task, especially on a team that likes to run the ball.

ON DEFENSE
The Bulldogs gave up more than 28 points just once last season, but it was enough to knock them out of the playoffs.
