2022 Defensive Outlook: “Tigers return six Defensive starters from a year ago. They will rely on being aggressive and use their athleticism to give multiple looks. The defense has a good mix of players at all three levels that will give them depth. The middle linebackers have a lot of experience and should be the strength of that side of the ball. Look for the Tigers to be stingy on defense this season.”

2022 Offensive Outlook: “The Tigers are returning seven starters on offense. They will rely heavily on the offensive line where they have all but one starter returning. There will be a lot of competition in the skill positions as the Tigers lost a lot to
graduation and will be very young. Big play guy Cade Christopher returns as well as returning RB Dalton Clymer. Look for the Tigers to try and establish the run game early and often.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Tigers will have competition in the kicking game this year, and the punting duties will be held by Seth Kern this season.”
