We'll finish up our OSI Pigskin Previews tonight with Omaha Burke. 

The Bulldogs finished one win short of a trip to Lincoln last season and have a lot of hype heading in to 2018. 

Paul Limongi's team features two of the best players in the state in Huskers linebacker commit Nick Henrich and tight end Chris Hickman. 

While the two guys may receive a lot of the attention the goal is still to bring Burke a Class A state football title. 

"I really think [we can bring home the title]." said Henrich. "I think we need to take it one step at a time and treat each day like it's the state championship."

"We have some business to finish, so unfinished business," said coach Limongi in reference to the team's goal heading in to 2018. "They understand and know what happened last year. It's a motto we have on the back of their shirts and in the weight room. They understand that but they need to look at what is right in front of them and that is getting better every day."

Burke will be returning six starters on each side of the ball in 2018. They'll square off against Lincoln Southeast week one. 

Be sure to tune in to the OSI Prep Pigskin Preview special featuring Sports Director Adam Krueger, Phil Bergman and Mike Sautter of the Omaha World-Herald on Wednesday August 22 at 6:30 p.m. on 3 News Now.
