Key Stats: Played in District 2 Class 4A Championship, 3 years in a row. Must replace numerous All-State, All-Regional, & All-League Players. Sr class leaves with 33 victories in 3 years, school record.
2020 Offensive Outlook: We need some younger players to step in and play at a high level right from the start. Our younger kids got a lot of experience in big games last season and we expect them to play well. Adam Howanitz will step in as our Sophomore QB and he’ll have big shoes to fill in replacing 2x All-State Athlete, Janaasah Boone. I think we have strong OL that are physically and mentally tough and our skill players are a year older and should be very athletic.
2020 Defensive Outlook: We lost a lot of physicality with graduation, but our returning players are big and quick. I think we’ll be able to hold our own on defense and hopefully some of our inexperienced players from last season will shine.
2020 Special Teams Outlook: We play most of our roster, so I’m hoping our Sophomore class with a spattering of older players will help us keep a good thing going on special teams. Corey Bushta should be one of the top punters in the league and our kicking game will be a work in progress.
