2022 Offensive Outlook: “We return 4 starters on the offensive line (Hamza Bdeir, Bill McMahon, Jacob Abate, Matt Beaudoin) and our starting running back (Keegan Eichert). The hope would be we are able to lean on our run game early as our QB (James Martin) continues to develop. We have two guys on the outside we know can get it done in Alex Williams and Dan Ecker. There will be plenty of competition to see who gets on the field at TE and our other WR position.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “We lost our 3 best defensive players to graduation (Zac Pacuraru, Jordan Dill, Liam McSherry). We will need to have guys step up at LB and DL. Our secondary will be our most stable defensive group next season with 4 guys coming into the season with Varsity experience already (Alex Williams, Dan Ecker, James Martin, and Ben Spector).”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We have two talented kickers/punters returning in Stuart Blake and James Callas. Stuart did an incredible job for us last season, and the hope is both will continue to develop and lock special teams in as a real strength for us this year.”
