2020 Returning Player Stats:

Colm McGroarty 569 Yards rushing over 1000 All-Purpose Yards

Ben Manley 490 Yards rushing and 75 Tackles on defense

2021 Offensive Outlook: We only have two seniors on this year’s team. We have several sophomores and juniors who played a lot of football last season. We need to replace the bulk of our offense from last season in Ben Terry. The strength of our team will be our offensive line. How quickly our QB develops will depend on our offensive success.

2021 Defensive Outlook: We need to be a better team this season defensively to compete for a District XI title. We have to do a better job stopping the run especially on the edge of our defense. We have our leading tackler in Ben Manley returning but we must find another Linebacker.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We need more consistency in kicking extra points. We need to do a better job blocking on Kick and Punt returns.
