2021 Offensive Outlook: Offensively, we need to be able to run the football and stay away from turnovers. With the bulk of our offense returning from last year, we think we are going to be able to move the football, hopefully resulting in good things. The offensive line returns intact and we believe we have a nice 1-2 punch running the football in Logan Tierney and Gavyn Grems. Hopefully, we will be able to throw the football to help open up the running game.

2021 Defensive Outlook: With most of our defense returning from last year, we believe this unit should be much improved. We have to be more aggressive and do a better job of tackling and create more turnovers.
