St. Bernard Vikings
COACH: Mike Noonan, first year.
1992 RECORD: 5-6, 3-2 in Mission League.
PREDICTION: New coach, but same philosophy. Noonan, who has coached for 25 years, plans to run the same offense and defense as predecessor Thomas Strickland. The Vikings return three-fourths of their backfield and have a Division I prospect in offensive tackle Matt Higgins. Look for St. Bernard to return to the playoffs.
