Key Newcomers:

2021 Offensive Outlook: Offensively there is a need to fill the void left by 4 year QB Braden Bohannon, but with Cole Thomas having great success and a lot of reps along with returning experience upfront and solid running backs returning there is the anticipation of having success.

2021 Defensive Outlook: There is a big void left upfront in the 4-4 with graduation leaving no returning starters on the D-Line. However, a lot of younger guys got reps last season and will be able to fill in nicely. Returning four linebackers, led by All-State ILB Luke Williams, will provide leadership and continuity.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Rheece Shuey should be a weapon on kickoff and provide some help for the defense. He will also be a threat with field goals because of his strong leg and returning experience.
