  • Burlington C. has tough competition in Big Northern East Aug 28, 2013 7:58 PM

That’s just on offense. Crabel added six to eight defensive linemen and between eight and 10 cornerbacks could see action. Central is coming off a 2012 season where it went 5-4 and 4-2 in Big Northern Conference East Division play. The Rockets were playoff-eligible, but missed on points.
