2022 Offensive Outlook: “We lost four starters that made up 80% of our offense last season. Matt Frame our leading rusher, Trevor Amroim our leading receiver and second-leading rusher, Brett Misear our second-leading receiver, and Dylan Smoyer our quarterback. We do return our entire offensive line and our two tight ends sets (Jack Tosh Jr TE). We also have skill players that we are excited about. Nick Frame will move to the quarterback and we will utilize a two-tailback system with Ramos and Jimenez. We expect to be very strong up front and if we can build depth in the backfield we will be a dangerous team.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “We feel that the strength of our defense will be our front. We do have depth with our lineman and feel that we may be able to rotate or platoon as the season progresses. We do return 2 of 3 linebackers and must find depth at that position. We also return a lot of experience in the secondary. Our defense improved throughout the course of last season and was very solid as we entered the playoffs. We expect our defense to be the strength of our team this year.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We feel that our special teams will be very solid this year. We have two solid kickers in Chase Moffit and Bailey Smith. We also have two solid punters in Bailey Smith and AJ Jimenez. We return our long snapper in Ethan Karpowich. We also return our two leading special teams tacklers in Chase Wisocky and Bailey Smith.”
