defense – allowed only 1888 total yards, and 132 total points, 13.2 ppg in 2017

2018 Offensive Outlook: The Squires will have to replace Ryan Hart, who lead the Squires in rushing, receiving, all purpose yards, as well as scoring. Big shoes to fill but In order to replace Ryan’s productivity, the Squires will look to a stable of running backs: Tyler Monto, Joe Hernandez (Tyler and Joe shared time last year) and Logan Brown. Senior Evan Brady, will look to follow up a strong 2017 campaign at QB where he threw for 1500 yards and 18 TDs. The Squires will also return 3 of their 5 starting linemen, but will need to fill those holes created by graduation if they want to contend in YAIAA Div 3. Athleticism will be the strength of this years offense.

2018 Defensive Outlook: The Squires have another large void created by graduation to fill defensively. Zachariah Schussler, YAIAA Div 3 Def Player Of the Leader. Tyler Monto, Ryan Myers, Josh Fulton will look to bolster the ILB position. Bookends, Marquis Suite, Chico Oparanozie, Andrew Shipley return at DE, while Zack Groft returns at defensive tackle. Evan Brady, will again direct traffic in the secondary. Key’s to successful defense will be to stay the course, rely on their athleticism, and come up with the big stop when the game is on the line.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: Marcello Malvone PK. Marcello has a strong leg but needs to strive consistency. Marcello had a game winning FG with no time remaining in week one VS Trinity Shamrocks, but missed a game winning FG a few weeks later VS Bermudian from the same distance.
Gabe Lee P will return in the punting game respectively.
