The Guilford Vikings were one of the surprise teams in 2013 finishing 3rd in the NIC 10 at 7-2 thanks to a dominant defense. They won't be sneaking up on anyone this year. The expectations have been raised after their most successful season in six years.
But the Vikings can rise to those expectations with senior QB Nino Musso leading the offense. As for the defense, they graduate 9 of their starters, but have reloaded and are ready to go.
Guilford opens the season against Jefferson, Freeport and East. Their first big challenge will come in weeks 4 and 5 with back to back games against Boylan and Belvidere North.
