Summary

Pat Huggins / GameTimePA.com

It takes more than just skill position standouts to field a winning football team.

But it certainly is a good place to start. And with quarterback Jeff Martin and running backs Tyler Horst and Travis Zimmerman returning to the fold this season, the Elco football team has a good place to start in 2015.

 

Martin, a senior, is back under center and set to be a three-year starter and four-year contributor after tossing 19 touchdowns during Elco's 4-6 2014 campaign.

And he's got two great options to hand off to in backs Zimmerman, a senior and Horst, a junior. The duo combined for 1,017 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, and along with Martin give Elco a great chance to be prolific on offense. How everything else falls into place will determine how the Raiders fare this season.
