Khalani Eaton rushed for 1,032 yards on 88 carries and 14 touchdowns.

Levi Carroll caught 10 passes for 332 yards and five touchdowns.

2021 Outlook:

Offense: Sky is the limit with this group. D1 athletes at QB and RB lead the way. A very talented and deep receiver group will make a balanced attack. As the Offensive line progresses with Darren Miller anchoring (another D1 prospect) this group of next man up mentality at North Penn is getting better every week.

Defense: Secondary is the strength with a deep Defensive line. LB groups have players but still figuring out the rotation and positions, also looks to be a potentially deep group as they learn the position. Middle LB David Dawes looks to be ready to lead this defense in tackles.

Special Team: New punter Luke Smeltzer and short/long snapper Tyler Deam along with kicker Grace MacNamara will lead this group.
