2021 Offensive Outlook: This is a CR South team that is deep in every class, from sophomores to seniors. It is a group with a strong mix of youth and experience, but most of all with a hunger and desire to be successful after some tough years. Offensively, our goal is to return to the sound, disciplined type of football that was a key part of the CR South identity during our most successful years.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Our identity defensively has always been based on high effort and desire to get to the football. We expect a number of players to contribute to our overall defensive effort, through rotations and substitutions, to ensure that the best group of 11 will be on the field at any given time. Buying into this mentality and carrying it onto the field will be the primary key to our defensive success this season.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Similar to our defense, our special team’s success is based on motivation and desire. Attention to detail is of the utmost importance and stressed every day in practice
