2022 Offensive Outlook: “The keys to our offense will be the ability to run the football and control the clock. We will have an inexperienced QB to start the year and we do not want to ask too much of him. We also believe we have one of the best Running backs in the area in Logan Tierney and an experienced offensive line so that should help establish the run game.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Defensively, we need to tackle people and avoid the big play and get off the field on third down. Our secondary will be raw and inexperienced and we hope as the season progresses they get better and more comfortable with each game. Our front seven will have to perform and help create turnovers.”
