Outlook: 2016 was a year Buckingham fans would like to forget. After the passing of longtime coach Craig Gill, Josh Wallace stepped in on late notice, with not much time for preparations, which ended with a 2-8 campaign. Now with a full camp, the Knights are finally starting to look like the fearsome Green machine we've come to know. Senior QB Daniel Brickhill will have a corp of young receivers to throw to, but most of his offensive line will be there for protection. Numbers are thin in spots, so the Knights will need to mature quickly, and stay healthy to have success in 2017.
