2022 Offensive Outlook: “We have a young offensive line with little experience, but I believe we will be able to efficiently move the ball with a young talented group of RBs and speedy wide receivers. Our offense will come down to our offensive line and a group of talented seniors leading the way.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “I believe we will have a quick, smart, and relentless defense. I am looking forward to watching a young group of linebackers and defensive linemen. Our secondary has the most experience and should be explosive.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We have a great mix of veterans and young kids that will lead our special teams. I believe we have some very good kickers and a bunch of speedy return guys.”
