Bridgewater St. and Worcester St. will be back! Both brought in very good recruiting classes. How does Salem State look this year?

I think this year in the MASCAC the team to watch is Framingham St. They brought in alot of talent this offseason and have a very good coaching staff to help bring these young players along. They are a team to watch this year for sure.
