Key Stats: We are replacing a number of record setting players from the past few seasons, but we do return a 1,000 yard passer in Chase Cavanaugh who was also one of our leading rushers.
2019 Offensive Outlook: Our offense is very exciting. This is the first year in which I cannot truly sit down and provide a potential starting lineup this close to the season, but it is due to so many young or new players competing for spots against our more veteran players. We will have a highly competitive camp environment which should truly provide opportunity to test our mental and physical toughness.
2019 Defensive Outlook: We do have more returning on the defensive side of the ball, but also lose some historically significant defensive players. There are big shoes to fill, but we developed depth last year on this side of the ball and look forward to building a physical unit. We will have tough completion at every position with many athletes fighting for play time. I am very excited to coach this team and work to continue build.
2019 Special Teams Outlook: We return one of our two kickers from last season in Brady Dowell and look to add a few more to the stable as the summer continues. Aiden Gair also returns to continue his uniting duties from last season. This aspect of our team needs to be an area of strength for our team to reach our goals.
