FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Tim Mannigel's team may be young, but it's not short on talent. 

Concordia only has seven seniors on its roster, but the Cadets have several guys returning at key positions. Quarterback Brandon Davis is back for his third year of varsity football, and nearly all of his weapons return as well. That includes Amir Drew, who rushed for over 1,000 yards as a sophomore last season. Mannigel and company know they'll have their work cut out for them in a loaded SAC, but they're hoping that tough schedule prepares them for the type of postseason run they had in 2016. 

The Cadets will host South Side in their season opener next Friday.
