2019 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year? 

Offense: At halfback Spencer Uggla and Stanley Bryant will share the running back duties. First year quarterback Drew Person has all the tools, big arm and ready to step into the starting role. Connor Noble will move too SE and Nick Lovenguth will be a key at tight end. Keanu Yazdjerd started last year at guard and will move to center this year. Donovan Mitchell started last year at tackle and really improved as the season went on. Another returning started is Kaelan Krasley. He is very mobile and physical. James Voss played some as a sophomore. He can move and change directions for a big guy. 

Defense: Have several Senior Defensive Lineman we are counting on to step up and continue our outstanding play at that position.  Patrick Tormey 5’10” 250; Julian Craig 5’10″‘ 200; PJ Grubb 6’2 220; Conor O’Reilly  6’1″ 240;  All have paid their dues and battling for playing time.
