2022 Outlook:

Offense: “The Colts will lose their most productive running back, Jontae Morris, and receiver Trenten Smith to graduation in 2022. Cedar Cliff also graduates 4 of 5 offensive linemen. The offense will need to lean on returning starters as some new faces will be gaining experience early in the season. The Colts will still look to remain balanced on offense.”

Defense: “Cedar Cliff will return their entire LB core from the 2021 season which will provide some stability on the defensive side of the ball. The secondary and defensive line will be largely made up of new faces. The Colts will need to rely on their team speed defensively as the defensive line and secondary gain experience.”

Special Team: “The Colts return kicker and punter Derek Witmer for his senior season. Derek is an extremely accurate kicker with a strong leg who is looking to kick touchbacks consistently.”
