2022 Offensive Outlook: “Offensively we need to be able to run the ball consistently. We need to cut down on turnovers and penalties which hindered our offensive production last year. Last, but not least, we need to finish in the RedZone. We missed a lot of scoring opportunities down in the RedZone.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Our defensive line should be the strength of our defense. We return 2 starters on the defensive line and also have several players returning that made contributions to the defense last year. We need to replace the production of an All-State caliber linebacker. We return our leading tackler at linebacker and we have two players returning that played meaningful minutes. In the secondary, we have the skilled players to be productive but we have to gain the experience to be able to play at a high level.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Need consistent play from all phases of the special teams.”
