2020 Outlook: We have to replace a lot of starters from the most successful football team of all time at Southern Lehigh.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that there are over 50 players on the roster and we have players to fill the lost starters.  We believe we will be a very competitive team in 2020 and look forward to playing in the new league and schedule.

Offense:  Offensively we have to replace 8-9 starters.  There will be a lot of competition across the board for us.

Defense:  We return more starters on the defensive side of the ball and we had several players who may not have started, but were playing varsity minutes at crucial times.

Special Team:  We return our kicker and punter in Christian Colasurdo.  He is able to kick the ball into the end zone on kick offs and has the leg for over a 50 yd. field goal.  Jake Fauzio  returns as one of our kick returners.
