St. Margaret's has 12 seniors who bring plenty of experience. Freeman is a big-play athlete with good hands, and Perin was the leading rusher last season. Sevelle began playing tight end last season, and Knutsen makes the move from linebacker to the defensive line. Kelly sat out last season with a back injury, but started as a freshman two years ago.
