2022 Outlook:

Offense: “In our triple-option scheme, the success of our offense always starts with winning the line of scrimmage.  We need to take care of the football and make good decisions to get the ball into the hands of our playmakers.  Creating big plays through our passing game is always a key as well.”

Defense: “We have a veteran front seven that we expect to be the leaders on our defense. We need our defensive line to fill gaps and put pressure on the QB to take pressure off of our secondary.  In the secondary, we need to limit big plays.  We also need to stress-causing turnovers this season to be successful!”

Special Teams: “Cole Roos returns as our kicker and punter, and he has done a great job continuing to improve his leg strength and accuracy this offseason.  I expect him to be a difference-maker in our special teams.  We also return Brayden Eppinette who was a 2nd team all-section kick returner as a freshman, and Aaryn Longenecker should also be dangerous on punt and kickoff returns.”
