2020 Offensive Outlook: This year Seth Robertson will probably be our starting QB. He has a nice arm and is very athletic. We will use his athletic ability to give us both a passing and running threat. We should have some size up front this year but we are young. Last year we had a number of injuries so everyone up front has a least gotten a little varsity time. Hopefully offensively we will be balanced running and passing giving us the ability to spread the ball around to various players.

2020 Defensive Outlook: Defensively we are returning our strong safety, free safety and weak safety. We run a 4-2 and these positions are critical in that defense. Again, we should have some size up front which hopefully will allow us to control the line of scrimmage. We do have to replace both linebackers from last year but I feel we are well on our way. Key to winning any high school football game is controlling your opponents ground game. With the players we are returning and our size up front, hopefully we can do that.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: We do have to replace both our punter and kicker from last year. We are returning our long snapper and several kick and punt returners from last year. Key to being successful this year in special teams will be locking down a punter and kicker.
