2017 Outlook:

New coach Brandon Johnson, a 2006 Bassett grad, says he's thrilled to come back and coach his alma mater. Johnson says he loves this team's intensity and willingness to keep fighting. It's that attitude to keep pushing that will make the Bengals a better team. Johnson says Bassett's skill guys are very agile, they can move and make you miss in space. He's been impressed with the Bengals linemen on both sides, saying they've been really getting after it in practice. Bassett's Seven Ziegler is a weapon on both sides of the ball at running back and strong safety, senior Skyler Barnes steps in this season at quarterback.
