2019 Outlook: We are very optimistic about this season!  The team has worked hard and is hungry to continue the success we have had in recent years (earning a spot in the playoffs 3 out of the last 4 seasons and finishing 2nd in conference last season. However, that is not an easy task in the always tough Suburban One League.

Offensively, our line is young but experienced.  We have depth at skill positions.  

Defensively, we have made some schematic adjustments that will better fit our personnel.  Secondary and Defensive line are experienced. LB corps needs to grow up fast.  

In terms of Special Teams, we have very talented returners and one of the better kickers in the area in Smigley.
