Slone and Smith played many snaps next to each other in the offensive backfield this season, with Slone as the Eagles’ top running back and Smith starting all 10 contests at quarterback. Slone ranked among the conference leaders with 788 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, while also proving to be a threat as a kick returner, tacking on 230 more yards. Smith threw for 1,182 yards and rushed for 375 yards, while tossing 11 touchdowns and rushing for another seven.

Witte, also a starter at safety, was honored by the league coaches for his exploits as a return man. On kick returns, Witte averaged 26.7 yards per return, including an 83-yard return for a touchdown against Walnut Hills. He also averaged 14 yards on eight punt returns.
