Key Stats: 2019 District 3 AA Champions

2020 Offensive Outlook: It will be difficult to replace Macklin Ayers (Dartmouth) at QB. But Tyler Cleveland has been the backup QB the past 3 years and I am confident that he can lead our Offense. We don’t have a lot of size returning on Offense, but our returning RBs have good speed.

2020 Defensive Outlook: It will be difficult to replace Macklin Ayers (Dartmouth) at OLB. But our JV Team was undefeated last year, so I am expecting a lot of those players to make major contributions to our Defense.
