The River City Roughriders will see if they can make it two in a row against the West Central Broncos. These two teams met last season at Paul Giel Field (Winona, MN). Defense was at a premium for both teams as the Roughriders won 9-6.
There will be a shake up with the Roughriders' roster for the 2015 season. To help sure up the offensive line, they have added veteran Jermaine Riley. Riley will also be asked to mentor the younger linemen like Zach Miller and Casey Paliagas.
Rashem Sharpe will join an already potent receiving group. This will certainly help one of the NEFL's leading quarterbacks (Karl Hoffmann). Hoffmann led the NEFL in passing yards and touchdowns.
The Roughriders will have a new Defensive Coordinator (Remy Gomez). Coach Gomez was a First Team All NEFL Safety each year while playing for the Roughriders. He will definitely have some big shoes to fill replacing John Bushman from last season. Coach Gomez's defense will be well stocked in 2015. Led by arguably the NEFL's best defensive linemen (James Washington). Washington will lead the "D" upfront and the Roughriders MVP Britain Bell will be asked to anchor the defense again.
There will be no shortage of talent in 2015. The question is, will the Roughriders improve from the 2014 playoff season?
