2020 Returning Player Stats: 

Matt Frame- Leading Rusher last year- 1,006 Rushing Yards with 14 TD’s averaged 7.98 yards a carry. 58 tackles 1 sack and 1 forced fumble

Dylan Smoyer- 976 yards passing 106 yards per game. 11 TD’s and 7 Int’s.

Trevor Amorim- Leading receiver last year- 28 receptions for 459 yards 16.39 yards per catch and 7 receiving receptions. 62 tackles and 1 interception

2021 Outlook:  

Offense: We are returning our quarterback who has an opportunity to be our first 1000 yard passer in a decade. Our leading rusher in Matt Frame and our leading receiver in Trevor Amorim. Our skill positions will be our strength this year. We have solid depth at each position and we will be able to rotate a lot of players at those positions. Our offensive line returns two starters and our tight end. We will be playing a couple of sophomores up front and how  well they develop will be key.

Defense: We return two of three linebackers, two of four secondary positions, and two of four lineman. So we do have a solid core returning defensively. We feel like our linebackers and secondary will be our strength defensively. Like our offense we will be young up front and must be able to build depth. We do have several underclassmen linemen who will be rotating up front.

Special Team: We return our Kicker Brett Misera. He is excellent and we are confident in his field goal range up to 40 yards. We return our punter Matt Frame as well. We feel confident that our special teams will be a strength this year.
