2022 Offensive Outlook: “Offensively we return five players with starting experience along the offensive line. It is our hope that they will drive our offensive production. We have several athletes we will look to get the ball to in different ways. It will be our goal to minimize turnovers offensively.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “Defensively we are looking to put ourselves in positions to succeed. We are looking to be aggressive and force turnovers. We are an alignment and assignment-based defense that needs everyone to do their job to be successful. We have some experience back defensively which will benefit us.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We have a very strong K/P returning in Evan Karenda. Evan takes pride in his craft and is someone we can count on to help us get points or gain an advantage in the field position aspect of the game.”
