2020 Returning Player Stats:

2021 Offensive Outlook: Our offensive keys are to be able to run the ball and control the clock. This involves great execution and a focus on limiting fumbles. Our ability to throw the ball should improve this year as well which will help to make us more explosive.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Our keys are to play fast and aggressive. We are bigger than we’ve been but still undersized so we will have to use our team speed and toughness to get stops and create turnovers.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: Ryan Blass is back as our returner but we will have to replace both our punter and kicker.
