SASAKWA, Oklahoma – The Vikings started out strong last season, but faded out about half way through. Coach Johnie Loggins wants his mean to stay focused on reaching the playoffs again, but more importantly he wants his players to finish strong.

They’ll be running a Power-I offense and will likely be relying heavily on the returning linemen, Lucian Wheeler and Mikey Sanchez. The duo will likely tag-team the defensive line as well, helping fellow linebacker John Harjo.

Overall the Vikings should be contenders again for the playoffs if they can stay focused on their goals.
