Key Stats: 2018 League & District Champs
2019 Offensive Outlook: The 2019 offensive line is where things need to start. We have 8 or 9 legitimate players competing for playing time. Some returning starters may be on the outside looking in while competing for a role. This will create depth, competition, and hopefully a strong work ethic! We will rotate 4 different running backs in and out of the game, which again will eliminate our chances for a player with huge rushing numbers, however it will benefit the TEAM in the long run.
2019 Defensive Outlook: Again, we have 6 or 7 defensive lineman who will rotate in and out. We have 5 or 6 linebackers competing for starting jobs, along with 6 defensive backs who will see quality reps all season long. Alignment, Assignment, Stance, Start, Execute, Tackle!!!
2019 Special Teams Outlook: Colin & Ian are huge assets to our team and will have plenty of opportunities to score points and pin opponents deep into their own territory.
