Head coach: Michael Eshragh Sr., first season
2011-12 record: 9-7-2 (6-6-2 Southeast)
Returning letter winners (starters): Nine (Seven)
Outlook: The Patriots are hoping to make a return trip to the postseason, but will be awfully young after losing two seniors to graduation and two top scorers to club soccer.
“We are a very young team, maybe one senior on the team,” Eshragh said. “I promise we will fight every game and give 110 percent effort.”
