2020 Outlook: Expectations and goals are always the same. We bring back a number of experienced players offensively, defensively, and many others have contributed with our special teams. Our goal is to field as many one-way players that can play at a maximum effort. Last year we did not face many of our opponents due to the pandemic.

Being in the 2nd year of the merger with Schuylkill and Colonial league we face a very competitive schedule with league games and also out-of-league games.
