2022 Offensive Outlook: “Offensively we have to replace a lot of graduating talent… Jr., QB Danny Darno started 2 games in ’21 and won both of them… Sr., OL Aiden Compton, and Sr., OL Mason Ludlow will anchor the offensive line in ’22… We have depth in our skill positions and there will be a lot of competition to get into roles within the offense this summer… We are returning varsity letter winners on the offensive line and expect to have depth there as well… Key is going to be developing our players heading into week 1 which I am confident we will do and getting better situationally as an offense.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Defensively, Coach Anthony Casciano is back this season to be the defensive coordinator… We lost starters to graduation on defense as well, but we return a good number of varsity letter winners… In the secondary, we return 3 starters and expect that group to lead our defense this season… In the defensive interior, we will replace some very good players from a year ago… We have good potential and we are excited to see how they will develop heading into the season… The key for us defensively will be maximizing our depth and getting better in situational football.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “Special Teams are wide open for us this year and we need to replace multi-year All-State K Nick Garrido who is headed to Lehigh University… Nick did all of our kicking and punting for the last 3 seasons… As stated for offense and defense we have choices… we just need them to develop ahead of the start of the 2022 season.”
