Tyler Audie, Biddeford, senior quarterback/defensive back: Audie started four games last year and the Tigers won three. He is a good passer and heady runner who directs the offense well. He was an all-league linebacker last year, but is being moved to the secondary to lessen the chance of injury.

Shawn Goodrich, Sanford, senior running back/safety: Goodrich rushed for more than 1,000 yards last year and was a dangerous kick returner. At 5-8, 165 pounds, he is deceivingly strong, capable of carrying the ball 25 times a game and absorbing all the hits. Look for the Redskins to get him the ball as much as possible.

Peter Gwilym, Cheverus, senior quarterback/safety: A gifted athlete, Gwilym is the leader of a strong Stags team. He makes good decisions on offense, whether it’s finding the open receiver or reading the defensive front on a run, and is a very good safety. His anticipation allows him to close quickly on receivers, often resulting in incompletions or interceptions.

Nick Ramsdell, Windham, senior two-way tackle: A returning All-State selection, Ramsdell is a devastating blocker who can open huge holes for the running game. He is also very athletic and can get downfield for blocks.

Matt Rollins, Bonny Eagle, senior quarterback/safety: A starter on defense last year, Rollins will take over at quarterback in Bonny Eagle’s shotgun spread offense. He’s very smart and has the ability to be a breakaway runner. His passing has improved greatly since last year and he might surprise some people.

Jamie Ross, Deering, senior quarterback: Ross is a prototypical spread offense quarterback, going 6-3, 205 pounds with a very strong arm and quick decision making. But he’s also one of the Rams’ more dangerous rushers, capable of shedding tacklers with power and deceptive speed.

Dimitri Skinsacos, Thornton Academy, senior H-back/linebacker: A skilled receiver who’s getting looks from several colleges, Skinsacos is moving into the backfield. He’ll still be a primary figure in the passing game but will be more involved.

Jacob Stanley, South Portland, junior running back/linebacker: A transfer from Palm Beach, Fla., Stanley is a strong breakaway back. At 200 pounds, he can overpower some defenders but also has an exceptional ability to shake tacklers.

Dylan Walton, Brunswick, junior tailback/cornerback: He showed promise as a sophomore last year and looks to carry an expanded role in the Dragons’ wing-T offense. He’s a heady runner who manages to find holes.

Imadhi Zagon, Portland, senior running back/quarterback/safety: Perhaps the best back in the state, Zagon will have even more control of the Bulldogs’ offense as he takes a direct snap in the Wildcat formation. He rushed for 1,375 yards and scored 17 touchdowns as a junior. Those stats should increase this year as he comes back bigger (6-2, 205 pounds) and faster. And his passing may surprise some teams.
