2020 Offensive Outlook: We bring back an experienced QB with several linemen that got quality experience last year. We are a run first team but we look forward to the growth that Davier showed last year in the passing game. We look forward to several players picking up the slack left from CJ Selby our school’s all time leading rusher.

2020 Defensive Outlook: We retrun 3 startes on the D Line that we are very excited about. All 3 are very explosive players that spend a lot of time in the weight room. Look forward to the other players competing for spots in the secondary as well as the linebacker spots.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We bring back a lot of experince here with our K and P.
