Key Stats: Our offense has topped 4000 yards for the past six years. We hope for continued success.

2018 Offensive Outlook: We return our leading our record-breaking QB and a large amount of our receiving core. We are working to reload at the running back position. Out offensive line saw three losses which have been filled by individuals who had a large number of starts either on defense or on special teams. Coming together and establishing a strong run game is essential for our success this season.

2018 Defensive Outlook: We return a large amount of our defensive line including our two linchpins in Bam Brima and Carmen Barone. Our linebacking core is represented by starters from our past season in Aiden Gair and Eli Holler. We have a lot to replace in our defensive backfield but are confident in our younger guys stepping into the open positions.

2018 Special Teams Outlook: We are returning all-state punter Derek Gee from injury. His talents were sorely missed late in last season. Our two kickers in Quinn Dietrick and Brady Dowell will compete for kicking duties. Last season those duties were split.
