2022 Offensive Outlook: “Only returning one offensive lineman from last season. It is very important that they gain experience quickly and begin playing with confidence to allow our offense to be balanced. We also need our returning skill players to step up and make big plays after catching the ball. We will be successful if our players buy into the weekly game plan and understand their role on offense and play unselfishly.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “We play an aggressive style of defense. We will bring players from different places on the field. We do have a number of returning starters coming back but we need to play with intensity and fly to the ball on every play.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “We will have new players starting on special teams this year and it is important to make sure we are strong on specials. This has hurt us in the past and it has taken us out of some games early in the season.”
