2020 Offensive Outlook: We will look to replace much of our offensive line this season and we’re excited about many of the prospects we have at those positions. We return our Quarterback, Ethan Kohler, who had a phenomenal sophomore season throwing for 2,300 yards and 21 touchdowns. Sophomore Running Back, Raysheem Grayson, is poised to have a breakout season for the Vikings and we have great competition at the slot and wide receiver positions moving into the season. We will strive, as always, to be balanced offensively and create conflict for opposing defenses.
2020 Defensive Outlook: We will be replacing 8 of 11 starters on defense, but we are very interested in some of our younger players that spotted in last season and showed flashes of becoming good varsity players. We like to play aggressive downhill defense where each player understands their gap/coverage responsibilities regardless of defensive call.
2020 Special Teams Outlook: We are very happy to return our Senior kicker/punter, Brayden Basile for the coming season. Brayden has been working very hard this offseason to improve his overall strength and technique and we have high hopes that he will have a terrific senior season.
