D1 (FBS & FCS) Prospects: Zach Rudolph, Timmy Walter

2015 Outlook: It is our goal to challenge for the top spot in our league and gain momentum for a district run. Our success will be determined on how well our skills carries us until the lines on both sides of the ball can jell and our new players get the necessary experience to be successful on a Friday night.

Offense: Our strength on offense will be talented skill players that can make plays in a variety of ways. Timmy Walter (686yds rushing; 761yds Receiving, 15TD) will be returning as a dual threat. We will have a new starting quarterback with very little experience and we will be thin on the offensive line in experience and numbers.

Defense: We will be talented but thin in numbers and experience in the defensive front seven. Gary Popowitz and Zach Rudolph will anchor the defensive line and Zach Mohr will be a key returning linebacker. We will have good team speed on defense but the experience factor and depth will be a challenge early in the season.

Special Teams: Timmy Walter looks to be a key in the return game. He will be joined by a Luke Strauss (KOR TD as a freshman), and a few others with speed. Team speed could provide us with an advantage in Specials. The kicking game will be an issue as we will be replacing a highly accurate and skilled kicker in Anthony Colasurdo.
