2021 Offensive Outlook: We return a good group of RB’s and WR’s. The Key will be finding the QB to run the offense. Returning some experienced guys upfront. Looking to replace a few key spots on the line. The Key will be to continue to develop a passing game that will complement our running game.

2021 Defensive Outlook: We return 2 defensive ends that we’re able to be good run stoppers and very good pass rushers. We need to develop interior tackles in our defense. We return a strong group of linebackers that have a lot of experience. Need to continue to get better in the back end with our pass defense.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Excellent punter in Benson and we have several athletes working this summer on their kicking game. Overall a quality group of athletes.
