Defense: “Experienced Front seven and emerging playmakers in Secondary should let us build off the successful end to last season on defense.”

Special Team: “Kicker Caden Kash worked hard this off-season with his kicking coach to improve. Punter Michael Gelatko is one of the best in the area. Long Snapper Jesse Rodino is one of the best around.”
