Key Stats: The 2020 Cardinals return a full senior class of 3 year starters for me. 6 all county players return. Brody Robinson is a returning Defensive player of the year nominee.

Our Roster grew to over 50 players this upcoming year.

2020 Offensive Outlook: The 2020 Cardinals return with great senior leadership. The majority of this senior class has started for me since 2018. Shea Morgan had over 400 receiving yds last season, Josh Leininger will be a 3 year starting QB and Robinson and Ney look to take the Rb load over. The offensive will see a different look all around. There will be a few new faces in some starting positions. This summer we will have many positions the are being battled for. Should be and exciting year in PGA. Shea M

2020 Defensive Outlook: Defensively we be our strong suit again with great leaders returning. With a great incoming freshman class, look to see a lot of young guys battling for starting spots.

2020 Special Teams Outlook: With Shea Morgan and Josh Leininger returning, we hope to use our special teams as an advantage.
