Key Stats: We won our sixth state championship in 8 years in 2019

2020 Offensive Outlook: Our offense returns 9 starters this season. To have a good season on offense, we are going to have to rely on a lot of mental reps we have gotten throughout the virtual offseason we endured. Some things will be a little different, but at the end of the day, Archbishop Wood smashmouth football will help guide us in the direction of competing for a PCL title.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Our defense returns 7 starters and will help create an identity for the 2020 season.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: Our keys on special teams would have to be finding a reliable kicker to replace our P and Fg kickers.

    Very sad this team could not play this year. Alot of Seniors have been playing together since they were kids. Cherish the memories you had….sorry you were denied one more run!!!!!!!!!! It would have been fun to watch. You guys worked hard to get this far. It’s not right to deny any of you the opportunity to try and get your last year in as well as the underclassmen to continue their journey.
