QB Mason Ryan will lead the option offense after rushing for over 700 yards in 2014.
2015 Season Outlook: I feel very confident in our senior led team this year. They are smart and hardworking young men. We return a nice amount of our skill players on both sides of the ball.
We do, however, need to replace four out of five linemen that we lost to graduation. Our guys have been working very hard since last season ended and we’ve had a great summer. With us being one of the smaller teams in the Anthracite Football League, we know that we have a difficult schedule ahead of us.
We need to stay healthy and stay confident and take it one game at a time.
