Key Stats: Kayden Riley 30/61 537 yards 8TD 2 INT as a freshman

2018 Offensive Outlook: We will be starting a new quarterback this year as Kayden stepped up after the injury to his brother Peyton and did an outstanding job. We have a lot of weapons but must replace 3 starters on the offensive line. I am very confident in our group of running backs and we have a VERY talented group of receivers

2018 Defensive Outlook: We unfortunately lost our defensive coordinator as Bill Freeman who had held that post the past 9 years has resigned but we have a talented group coming back and I trust that Brian Raup our new coordinator will do a great job. We will be a little more aggressive in our 3-5 scheme than in past seasons.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We bring back one of the best kicker/punters in the district in Peyton Riley as well as two vry dangerous kick/punt returners in Shane Kozick 2 return TD’s last year and Peyton Persing also 2 return TD’s
