2021 Outlook: Our team needs to continue to gel and get more familiar with each other.  While we have a number of kids who played at various times, as a unit on both sides of the ball we are replacing a large number of starters.

Offense: We need to be able to play complimentary offense.  We have to run the ball well to throw the ball well and vice versa.  Our key to our offense will be our O-line.  As they go we will go.

Defense: We have to continue to be aggressive defensively.  We were strong up the middle the past two seasons.  Although we lost several great players to graduation, we have some capable players ready to fill in.

Special Team: We return our kicker from last year.  He was consistent in extra points and also in kick-offs.  We will be replacing our punter from a year ago.
