2020 Offensive Outlook: We have several skilled players at the wide receiver and running back position who could make a huge difference in our record and success this season. We lost four of the five offensive linemen from 2019. So the big question will be whether or not our offensive line can mature as quickly enough to help the skilled players. Replace two-year starter, Bradley Stoltzfus, at QB will be a huge task. Sophomore QB Macoy Kneisley will take over gaining some experience last season as a freshman.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Defensively, we need to make a few more stops and get the defense off the field. Too often, we allowed our opponents to make a play big play that kept our offense off the field. The defense needs to create a few more turnovers, but more importantly, we need more three and outs. A few of the keys will be our pursuit to the ball and limiting yards after contact and making stops or big plays early in downs.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We have the skilled guys to make big plays on special teams. The key will be to get all eleven guys to sell out every special team play during the season. Early success on special teams will give us the confidence needed to make a difference in the outcome of the game. Getting our younger players to believe they can get the job done.
