The Bulldogs had the first 9-0 regular season in program history and won the OK Green conference outright.
"It gives us a lot of stuff to show us what we can do and stuff that worked last year to take to this year," senior running back and defensive tackle Kolton Van Nest said. "Also just motivates us and try to do even better this year."
Byron Center brings back 26 seniors from that squad, many of them played a lot as juniors and five of them will be three year varsity players.
"These guys played a lot of plays last year for us," 11th year head coach Marc Cisco said. "A lot of kids started at different positions. So we had a ton of contributors that you wouldn't normally hear unless you actually went in and watched and look closely at our roster. So we expect a lot from them."
"I mean we just hold ourselves to the same standard treat it the same way," senior linebacker Austin Roon said. "We've got a lot of dudes the same dudes coming back a lot of dudes that can fill the spots that are missing, and I definitely think we can produce better if not the same season as last year."
The Bulldogs are making the move this fall to the OK White conference with the likes of Forest Hills Central, East Grand Rapids and Lowell.
