Experience and talent on both sides of the ball with a potent offense and athletic defense are expected to lead to a run at the Heart of America Athletic Conference title. Baker features DB Colton Miller, QB Mack Brown and RB Richie Bryant in the magazine's "Super 72" section, which highlights the top players in the nation.
HAAC teams joining Baker in the top 20 are Lindenwood (No. 3), MidAmerica Nazarene (No. 10), and Missouri Valley (No. 18). Baker will face both Missouri Valley and MidAmerica in the first two weeks of the season.
