College Prospects: Gabe Franzyk (QB), Cam Dennis (slot receiver)
Gabe Franzyk 164 carries for 891 yards rushing and 155/261 passing for 1828 yards and 22 passing tds.
Cam Dennis 87 receptions for 1003 yards and 12 receiving tds.
Offense: Led by an experienced line, a senior QB, and an all-state receiver, we expect to execute at a very high level. The key will be the development of the incoming younger players who have a ton of talent but little varsity experience.
Defense: Replacing 10 starters on defense will prove challenging, however there is a ton of incoming talent and true potential for greatness. The key will be to get quickly acclimated to our aggressive defensive schemes and play with great confidence!
Special Teams: Cam Dennis in the return game can be electric. We hope to have others contribute. We need to replace an excellent kicker from last year. Jack Hyland looks to be a promising kicker.
