2015 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
Offense: We will need several new linemen and new WR’s to step up and fill the void left behind from graduation. We lose 4 starting OL and 3 starting WR’s. We will also need to fill the shoes of RB Raleigh Sirb who rushed for more than 3,500 yards in his career.
Defense: We will need newcomers to improve quickly at the DB and LB spots after having lost all 3 DB’s and 3/4 of the LB’s to graduation. We do return 3 of the 4 DL (2 of them were all-conference in 2015) and the one returning LB was all-conference as well.
Special Team: Kicker Ethan VanBuskirk got valuable experience in 2015 and will continue to improve. Senior Nick Santomieri is expected to be our punter.
