Key Stats: We will return 7 starters on each side of the ball with a heavy senior class that has played together for many years.

2019 Offensive Outlook: Losing three very good offensive lineman will hurt, and finding replacements will be key. Look for returners S. Figard, Bennett, and Criley to anchor the front 5. All skill production from last year is back with Stump and Kenny looking to get most of the carries. Dual threat Antonio Garcia will look to attempt to continue growth in the passing game with sure target Masyn Miller. Kitner, Stine, Rossman, Radel and Co. will be the other targets opposite miller.

2019 Defensive Outlook: Again – losing three year starter and all league linebacker Conner McGuire will be huge. Kenny, Criley, Amick, and a host of others will need to really have a good year at the linebacker spots. With losing Etter and Eckerd up front, the Hawks will change to a hybrid defense that will incorporate more movement in the back half. Plenty of young hats, including Figard and Frisenda to fill lose holes. Young guys will need to step up quickly. The secondary will be by committee. Stump returns at Safety, but Garcia is the only other DB that has received significant playing time. Look for Rossman, Miller, Kitner, and Stine to battle for the other CB spot.

2019 Special Teams Outlook: Miller, a consistent PAT kicker for us a year ago returns. Hopefully we can use his leg as a weapon the red zone. Amick returns for the punting duties, with his legs being option to tuck and run if he reads correctly.
