Up next in our OSI high school previews is Omaha North.
The Vikings are the reigning Class A state champions. Led by bruising senior running back Zander Gray, Omaha North will be looking to bring home a state title for the second year in a row.
"[We] eally haven't talked about that much," said head coach Larry Martin. "With our success it's a new team, new journey, new expectations and I get the kids have expectations but you need to earn that."
"Yeah I'm ready," said Zander Gray on carrying the load at running back in 2018. "I've been waiting for this moment since freshman year and I knew it was going to come. I've been working hard for this moment and everybody needs to work hard so we can get the job done."
The reigning state champions will look to be the first Class A team to repeat since they did so in 2013 and 2014.
The Vikings open the season Thursday against Creighton Prep.
