D1 (FBS & FCS) Prospects: QB Mason Jones, WR. Zach Tredway, RB Will Dogba, OT Chris Wilson
2015 Outlook: The offense will be looking to get off to a strong start against three very good non-league opponents. Senior leadership will be very valuable and a key to getting off to a strong start. The defense will look to gain valuable experience in the beginning of the year.
Offense: Quarterback Mason Jones returns for his third year leading the Redskin offense. His leading targets will be Senior Zach Tredway and a Sophomore Corey Joyce. We are deep at receiver so look for other names to emerge as the season progresses. Ben Raab and Oleh Manzyk should provide good production at tight end. Our running game should be strong, returning running back Will Dogba and fullback Hayden Rooney. Our line will be anchored by three Seniors AJ Sanko, Eddie Parry and Chris Wilson.
Defense: Eddie Parry and Kyle Osterhoudt return to provide experience to the defensive line. Chris Wilson may give us some help in there during the course of the year, along with a handful of very hardworking Juniors. Linebacker is the area we are working our hardest at improving at this time. All four linebacker starter from last year graduated. Sophomore Oleh Manzyk, senior Hayden Rooney and Junior Mike Garlick seem to be the frontrunners right now at three of the four spots. Look for this position to improve greatly during the course of the year. The defensive backfield should be a strength, returning Tredway at Safety and Senior Jacob Gordon at Corner. We have some very talented Athletes competing for the third spot.
Special Team: Kicker Dylan McDonald returns for his fourth year of kicking duties.
