Northgate welcomes back T.J. Wiley as coach as he returns following a one-year stint at Deer Lakes.
Wiley returns to a program that produced a 2-8 overall record last year, including a 2-6 mark in the Eastern Conference. The Flames will play in the reorganized Black Hills Conference this season.
The Flames' primary offensive threat is 5-foot-11, 165-pound senior quarterback Johnny Camello, a two-year starter who has seen varsity action since his freshman season.
Tailback Brett Howell (5-11, 185, Sr.) played his first two years at Northgate before transferring to Pickerington North in Ohio for his junior year. He returns to Northgate for his senior season. He brings some legitimate speed to the Flames offense, having been timed at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
