Key Stats:
Offense averaged 17.5 pts/game Defense gave up 38 pts/game
Louie Clouser averaged 6.5 yards/carry (4 TD)
Tremaine Ervine averaged 7.4 yds/carry (5 TD)

2020 Offensive Outlook: We have speed in backfield and perimeter however, OL must continue to improve. Key position will be the development of the QB position (all potential candidates are dual threat type kids–the one who brings leadership and consistency in pass game will be the starter. There is potential to be a solid football team on this side of the ball. We ran the ball fairly well in the second half of last season (4 of our final 5 games we rushed for over 200 yds)

2020 Defensive Outlook: Despite the number of kids returning, if we don’t get more physical at the point of attack and tackle better we will struggle. We will try to disguise what we do with multiple looks but eventually we have to win battles at LOS–PLAIN AND SIMPLE

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We have a solid PK returning and a number of solid LC and Punter candidates. We have a couple of fast kids who could excel in return game as well.
